Thank you!

It should be.
Usually we do not need to force the order of include directories. For
kernel projects it should default to the kernel includes.
I test with the last two versions of VS (2019, 2017).

We should add a build matrix for different versions of VS images to
appveyor / GHA so we could be sure.
I'll try to update the appveyor side.

FWIW a new version of VS was launched yesterday (
), I will try to compile
without the patch to see if they hotfixed the issue.
