      Windows Server 2012 R2 + VS2017 RTM + Python 2.7 + SCons 2.5.1

      I tried to build Mongodb with master barnch latest revision on Windows. It failed due to ImportError: No module named typing. This issue can be produced form master branch revision c776e095 (https://github.com/mongodb/mongo/commit/c776e095ac25d0426624f4a84c03f0094c3c661f)

      Some investigation on my side:
      It seems that module typing is supported from python 3.5. But SCons does not run under Python version 3.6.1. Python 3 and above are not yet supported. Is there any workaround for this issue? Thanks!

      You can repro the issue as the steps below:
      1. git clone -c core.autocrlf=true https://github.com/mongodb/mongo D:\MongoDB\src
      2. Open a VS 2015 x64 command prompt and browse to D:\MongoDB\src
      3. scons all -j4
