.known-versions = 14.0 12.0 11.0 10.0 10.0express 9.0 9.0express 8.0
8.0express 7.1

Because traditionally, we place the newest version first; and on a VS 2017
installation with both 141 and 140 toolsets, the above will (as far as I can
see) pick and build with 14.0 if no toolset is given, which may be
