Default Win7 SDK Install VS 2010

Why is this impossible to install without wasting a whole day of research? I still don't have it installed as it always errors out. I read about uninstalling different VC++ redistributable packages from add/remove programs and it went further with the install. Does anybody know the correct answer on how to install the latest Win7 SDK??
Thanks,
DB

Sorry but I don't have the answer either. Most of the time I think the installation works okay (although it can still take a while because it's big) but once in a while someone gets stuck and it takes forever. I think I've only had one or two installations over the years that really turned bad and for those I had to reinstall Windows. Not the preferred solution

Well I am sure not going to re-install Windows for something like this. I called Microsoft and will now wait for a call back from another country from someone talking with a heavy accent when they get around to it. Arrrgghhhh. This was after 4 hours of trying to fix it from what I googled. I will google some more and keep trying until they call.
Thanks,
DB

Default I Fixed It!! WooHoo!

In the release notes after it fails to install it mentions in section 1.4 that "This release of the Windows SDK does not include a .NET Framework Redistributable Package". The Client version of the .NET framework is not enough etc blah, blah, blah. Why doesn't it just tell you that when it fails to install? Anyways, I am happy to have that fixed. So if anyone else has this problem just read section 1.4 of the release notes.

Default Followup

I was thinking after I got this working that VS 2010 should have installed the full version of the NET 4.0 Framework and found out it does. So that means my install must have been corrupt (4.0 Framework) because re-installing it fixed the problem. That more than likely explains some of the other problems I was having when loading and converting old version code like I reported in another thread. Hopefully it's smooth sailing from here on out. :)
