“Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7” product has reported the following error: Please refer to ConfigDetails.htm document

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.

Solution:

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.

More Information:


If you try to install Windows SDK v7.1 after you upgrade to Visual Studio 2010 SP1, the Visual C++ compiler features might be blocked during the setup process. To resolve this issue, run the Windows SDK 7.1 Setup again, clear the Visual C++ Compilers check box, and then complete the setup. After Windows SDK v7.1 is installed, install the update that is described in the “Update information” section
