When trying to build any kind of C++ program I get the following error message:
Project : error PRJ0003 : Error spawning 'cl.exe'
I have recently installed Visual Studio 2008 Standard with only C++. Directly after the DVD installation I installed the Visual C++ 2008 Feature Pack and the Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (in that order).
When searching for cl.exe on my machine I find the following occurrences:
1. "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin\amd64\cl.exe"
2. "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin\x86_amd64\cl.exe"
The folder "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin" does not include cl.exe and I think this is the reason why I get this error.
