This is the error message I just started getting. I have ran VB 2010 Pro for about two month, but all the sudden I get this error message.
I removed vs2010 and rebooted, then re-installed, but still get this mesage. So now it refuses to run at all and throws up a message. The log file is below.
'Microsoft.Build.Utilities.ToolLocationHelper.GetPlatformSDKLocation' not found.
Static method invocation should be of the form: $([FullTypeName]::Method()), e.g.
This is a brand new error message, and I used VS all day yesterday with no problems. Any ideas?

Welcome to the MSDN forum.
So now you can't open VS at all but only got the message you mentioned?
I searched the method you mentioned and found that this method is only used by .NET 4.5.
Have you installed any related products before? VS11 or .NET 4.5?
If so, please try to uninstall them first. Since it is still a beta version, maybe it will cause some unknown problems.
Aslo, please run this tool to show us some logs to analyse:
After you run Collect.exe, you'll find vslogs.cab in your %temp% directory. Please upload vslogs.cab to a public site, like SkyDrive, and post the link here.(Notice: Please first clear your %temp% folder, then run your installation, at last use the collect tool. Then I will get a fresh log)
