Several of the MFC header files, included when building a native C++ MFC static project, have XML errors. These lead to warning messages when compiling.

The errors are I found are 

Line 220 of afxtoolbarimages.h
Lines 141,148,155 of afxribbonbar.h
Line 236 of afxribboncategory.h

From the forums, there are several more. MS needs to run all the headers through the compiler or other XML checker.

Hello Voice,

Thanks for the report. While a number of XML warnings had been fixed since Visual Studio 2010 was released, I did find a couple more warnings, which I have fixed for Visual Studio 11 RTM.
