I am getting this error: (error MSB6006: "CL.exe" exit code 2) when trying to build a win32 c++ app in Visual Studio 2010. I created a new c++ console application and tried to build it using visual studio, but I get this error.
I have no issues when using Visual Studio 2008.
I've tried reinstalling/repairing VS 2010 as well as uninstalling and reinstalling it. I'm not sure what else to try. This post (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/vcgeneral/thread/742dc49b-5fe1-4808-97b4-a8103617406c?prof=required) mentioned the PATH variable, but isn't clear what is/may be missing.
Any help would be great.Regards,

No I don't get any additional error messages.
What does code 2 mean? I haven't been able to find anything on the error codes.

That thread (which I linked to in my first post) mentions two errors. The first one I'm not getting (errorC1190) and the second one (cl.exe error code 2) mentions something may be missing in the PATH variable. It isn't clear what is/may be missing.
