CAUSE

This issue occurs when you install the Windows 7 SDK on a computer that has a newer version of the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable installed.  The Windows 7 SDK installs version 10.0.30319 of the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable. 

RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, you must uninstall all versions of the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable before installing the Windows 7 SDK.  You may have one or more of the following products installed:
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x86 Redistributable
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 Redistributable
After uninstalling the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable products, you may install the Windows 7 SDK.  After installing the Windows 7 SDK, you may then reinstall the newer version of the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable products, in order to restore the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable products to their original state.
