Spent some time to get MSVC working today.

The issue was with extracting Python, committed fix, tested with
release and debug:

@Martijn, I didn't test with CPack, but the destination paths used
aren't absolute anymore.

Note that the default configuration still fails for me with LLVM
linking error, worked around for now by disabling OpenShadingLanguage,
We should resolve but I'm calling it a day for now.
