The development version code can set the variable EXTERNALS_DIR in two .bat files, but nowhere in a .bat file is set the variable EXTERNAL_DIR, the latter appearing in find_python.bat. I am not a Powershell user and so cannot interpret the content of the file .azure-pipelines/windows-steps.yml, where the variable EXTERNAL_DIR likewise appears, but, being familiar solely with .bat files would question whether a misprint had occurred in the below commit, as "%EXTERNAL_DIR%" rather than "%EXTERNALS_DIR%"?

Yep, good catch. That should be EXTERNALS_DIR in PCbuild/find_python.bat.

Should windows-steps.yml (line 11) and windows-appx-test.yml committed 6 Dec. (line 39) both read EXTERNALS_DIR?

They should set it, and it will be read in PCbuild/python.props which has the "correct" name (I forget what it is right now and am not looking it up on my phone)
