It should be "detected configurations" without any "number of".

What about this:

Depending on a supplied version, detected configurations and presence
'cl.exe' in the path different results may be achieved. The following
table describes all possible cases:

Nothing "x.y"
Passed Nothing "x.y" detected, detected,
version detected detected cl.exe in path cl.exe in path

default Error Use "x.y" Create "default" Use "x.y"
all Do nothing Use all Do nothing Use all
x.y - Use "x.y" - Use "x.y"
a.b Error Error Create "a.b" Create "a.b"

"x.y" - refers to a detected version;
"a.b" - refers to an undetected version.
