We have recently came across the requirement for installing WPF Profiler in one of our Windows Server 2008 R2. We have downloaded the installer from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8279 anf tried to install the same.
We received the exception “Installation of the “Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7″ product has reported the following error: Please refer to Samples\Setup\HTML\ConfigDetails.htm document for further information.”
As per http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2717426/de, we have uninstalled the VC++ re-distributable and again tried to install the same. Again received the same error.
1. Install SDK by un ticking “Visual C++ compiler” option.
2. Now download the Compiler patch and install the same. Please refer http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2519277, you can find the compiler patch download link under Resolution section.
