      Description

      Description

      Currently Studio has a option to add the path to the Windows SDK location in Preferences->Studio->Platforms->Windows this should be removed for the following reasons

      1. Due to Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 development being supported there are multiple paths for the SDKs and it is not like Android where one location holds mutliple versions of the SDK
      2. The CLI automatically detects these locations through the registry keys
      3. It is confusing for a user to try and set this path and Studio inform them that the detection failed when this is dealt with by the CLI
