        The earliest MSC I have is 7.0 which has the 3.1 SDK on it (separate
disk and separate install program).

I think the Windows 1 SDK was bundled with some versions of the
Microsoft C Compiler v 4.0.... or I guess, it would have been
the compiler bundled with the SDK.

In the late 80s, lots of people were buying the SDKs and then stripping
out the compiler packages and selling them. I bought MS C 5.0 that way
from someone who'd bought a Microsoft OS/2 SDK. I was able to send a
copy of a letter from the seller to Microsoft, who registered me as
a valid licensee! However, they stopped that practice shortly there-
