Summary0027373: Preferences: Windows UWP Tools Folder looks for makepri.exe in only one architecture, can cause build issues
DescriptionBy default currently we point to the older Windows 10 SDKs x86 folder for makepri.exe which doesn't work with newer installs of Visual Studio 2017 or standalone Windows 10 SDK installs the path for this is now "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.15063.0\x86"

What we should do is take the Windows Target Platform Version from your Game Options and then depending on which architecture you're building append x64, x86 etc onto the end as they all contain different versions of makepri.exe

Eg "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\$(version)\$(architecture)"

This would mean we could potentially remove the field as it would always point to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\
Steps To Reproduce1) Open Preferences
2) Under Platform Settings see that we point to an older version of makepri and only for x86 by default
