An update to the Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4 (Windows SDK 7.1) is now available. This update addresses the issue where Visual C++ Compilers and libraries that are installed with the Windows SDK are removed when Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 is installed.
Please follow this link to download and install the update.
Our recommended install order is:
- Visual Studio 2010
- Windows SDK 7.1
- Visual Studio 2010 SP1
- Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Compiler Update for the Windows SDK 7.1
You may eventually swap steps 3 and 4, still getting a successful scenario.
You must have installed Windows SDK 7.1 in order to install the update. However, you do NOT have to have installed VS 2010 + SP1 – this update is also applicable to the standalone SDK.
