Released: Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Compiler Update for the Windows SDK 7.1

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:

  1. Visual Studio 2010
  2. Windows SDK 7.1
  3. Visual Studio 2010 SP1
  4. 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.
