Response from the Working Group
================================
In the interest of brevity and flexibility, we will replace the link
you question with the following link (which should always reference
the latest Microsoft Windows SDK available for download):
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/bb980924.  The WG encourages
users to find the configurations that work best for them in accessing
these links. Note that while we remove links that no longer point to
existing web pages, there is not a commitment to continue to update
links to newer versions of tools, documentation, etc.
