I use Visual Studio 2017 to build the source code from the master branch. But it failed. The output message shows that I lose my ffi.h.

I find that the developer had removed the libffi_module directory under cpython/modules/_ctypes  since 32119e10b792ad7ee4e5f951a2d89ddbaf111cc5

I guess that maybe that's the problem why I get failure

We added a new dependency.

Run a build using PCbuild/build.bat and it will download it for you. Then building through VS should work again.
