I am using Windows SDK 7.1 from last one and half year and I was happy with this.
Yesterday I installed Visual Studio 2012 express edition and after that my happiness gone :(

I am getting below error when I compiled my program, I am not using VS2012 just installed to try, but it corrupt my Windows SDK 7.1

   Creating library libTAFClogger.lib and object libTAFClogger.exp

I have uninstalled VS2012 express edition and repair Windows SDK 7.1 two times but still same problem I am getting.

I don't know which component effecting Windows SDK 7.1

I understand your point but I can't share my code due to some restriction, and without sample you can't reproduce and fix this issue.

I don't know how to proceed :(
