We don't currently support that officially.  CMake generates temporary
project files in several places, e.g. try_compile, that would not get
user-set properties from the project code.

In order to support a custom platform SDK CMake would need to be
taught a corresponding abstraction.  The VS generators already support
similar abstractions:

* CMAKE_GENERATOR_TOOLSET = v141 or some other toolset
* CMAKE_GENERATOR_INSTANCE = Which VS 2017 to use on local machine

All of these affect the way .vcxproj files are generated. If a
.vcxproj file needs an additional field for MSBuild to be able
to find the SDK then a similar abstraction will be needed.

I'd need to understand the use case better before recommending an
approach to such an abstraction.
