Windows 7 installation
I can't completely install Windows 7 SDK onto my computer. This is the error I keep getting: A problem occurred while installing selected Windows SDK components. Installation of the "Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7" product has reported the following error: Please refer to SamplesSetupHTMLConfigDetails.htm document for further information. Please attempt to resolve the problem and then start Windows SDK setup again. If you continue to have problems with this issue, please visit the SDK team support page at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=130245. Click the View Log button to review the installation log. To exit, click Finish. What can I do to fix this? Thanks!

    Numerous similar cases are found by a Google search for [ Please refer to Samples\Setup\HTML\ConfigDetails.htm document for further information ].

    The most common resolution is to uninstall any and all versions of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable, then retry the Windows 7 SDK install. (See Windows SDK Fails to Install with Return Code 5100 for example.)

    The Win7 SDK apparently has a Visual C++ Redistributable inside, and it regularly conflicts at install time.
