    Exclamation Visual C++ 2008 installation problem

    I have recently installed visual C++ 2008 express edition with SP1 on my Windows XP machine. But, whenever I try to build the solutions, I get this error :
    error PRJ0003 : Error spawning 'rc.exe'
    I reinstalled the IDE and googled online for help, but of no use.
    Note: I manually tried to find rc.exe but couldn't find it. Where is it located?? Also, I have no "microsoft sdk" folder in my program files. Is it the problem??

    In 2005 rc.exe should be somewhere in:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\bin
    Or
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\bin
    Depending on whether you are running 64 or 32 bit windows.

    I guess for 2008, it should be in "Microsoft Visual Studio 9".

    I installed it through visual C++ 2008 express edition, not through visual studio.
