After installing Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1, some users were unable to use the x64 or IA64 compilers from the Windows SDK 7.1. Now the Visual C++ team has released an update for VS2010 SP1 available here. For more information about the update, please see KB2519277 on the Microsoft Support site.

You can install the update to fix existing installations, but if you have not yet installed Visual Studio 2010 SP1 the recommended install order is,

  1. Visual Studio 2010 RTM
  2. Windows SDK 7.1
  3. Visual Studio 2010 SP1
  4. Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Compiler Update for the Windows SDK 7.1

Please visit the Visual C++ team blog for more information or questions.

  • If you already have VS 2010 Pro SP1 installed, and then install SDK 7.1, do you need to then re-apply SP1 plus Compiler Update, or do nothing?

  • @favo, yes you need to reapply SP1 after installing WinSDK 7.1 followed by the compiler update. SP1 contains some newer unversioned files that SDK 7.1 overwrites.

  • I come back to this blog post from time to time to make sure I install VS2010 and its supporting components in the correct order (don't want to mess it up - "there goes my afternoon").

    Recently, however, the installation order failed me. I've posted about it here:

  • After installing the software in above sequence, I have came across a bug that, my application created in VS2010 with .Net Framework 2.0 is unable to debug i.e. breakpoint doesn't hit at all.

    It loads the symbol but why doesn't it hit the breakpoint?

    So after lot of effort I came across a KB link by Microsoft.

    But the next problem stuck on my machine is it not able to install the given patch.

    I have 64 bit Windows 7 Enterprise

    DOES any one has any idea.

    -Please do not suggest me to switch the framework from 2.0 to 4.0 for my project, this is not allowed

    -I cannot add any file to my project like app.config

  • i have got a erro :atal error LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF: file invalid or corrupt

  • @ahuang, please post your question in the VC++ forum: As an educated guess, it's likely you need to do a full build instead of incremental.

  • Copy c:\windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v4.0.30319\ cvtres.exe (42Kb)

    in Programs(x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\Bin\
