I thought I had a workaround for this, but I'll have to check it out. Oddly enough, all of my builds have been fine (I think I'm mostly doing release builds - does that make a difference?)

I'm torn about that. Ideally I'd like to suppress the existing ones and still have new ones appear, but that probably requires going through and fixing them. Maybe leaving the warnings there will encourage someone to do it? :)

This is a known issue with the Windows SDK - they need to release a new version to handle the changes in the compiler. It doesn't affect the Python build, though it is currently breaking some of my installer work :( I'm confident it will be fixed soon - they're getting a lot of reports about it.
