otp_build installer_win32 problems with visual studio 2017

Michael Stellar-2
Hello,

       I don't know if either this question should be belong in
erlang-questions but i wanted to gather info or direction from erlang
windows developer specifically, since i have a fair practice and might
be known that it's better to use newest/newer msvc/windows c++
compiler for it's better in assemblies generation and might be have
less bug in it for assemblies generation, so for those reasoning i
have been able to compile latest github vanilla using either msvc 2015
or msvc 2017 using cygwin x64, i haven't test thorough-fully all of
the erlang functionality whether it's working fine in these newer
compiler.

The used .bash_profile for msvc 2017 enterprise will be attached below
(some minor adjustments might be needed), other changes that needed to
compile is :
#Edit C:\cygwin64\home\Prodigy\src\otp\lib\wx\c_src\egl_impl.h , line 114

and

##ON LINE 4371 in erts/configure.in add the following

###############END OF CHANGES##################################

The only last remaining problem is
src\otp\erts\etc\win32\nsis\find_redist.sh seems failed to finding
"vcredist_x64.exe"which is located in "C:\Program Files
(x86)\Microsoft Visual
Studio\2017\Enterprise\VC\Redist\MSVC\14.10.25008".

The cl.exe for msvc 2017 enterprise is located in " C:\Program Files
(x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\bin\amd64"

Based on INSTAL_WIN32.md direction of recommending visual studio 12.0
or 2013, the cl.exe location for msvc 2013 x64 is "C:\Program Files
(x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\bin\amd64".

And the vcredist_x64.exe for msvc 2013 is "C:\Program Files
(x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\redist\1033".

Based on these informations, and my noob attempt at sh shell scripting
i have got the following :

A github pull request with the changes would be best way for us to review this.
