    Good for you - how about sharing that with the rest of the community?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    He probably grabbed the SDK. I think it comes with them.

    how to solve

    1. installing SDK
    2. modifying everything I could to make Win32 applications available (msdn guide)
    3. puzzling over VCProjectEngine.dll.express.config
    3. copying and pasting everything from the SDK to Microsoft Visual Studio in desperation (that wasn't so smart)

    my problem was VCProjectEngine.dll.express.config - I set it to the wrong place
