Windows SDK for Windows 7 (7.1) and .NET Framework 4 fails to install

    Question

  • I want to install FxCop 10, and am trying to install the SDK 7 and .NET Framework 4 package so that can happen. I am using the ISO file found here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8279 (I also tried the web installer and it has the same problem as I am about to describe)

    I get through only a few seconds of installation before it fails with the following message:

    Installation of the "Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7" product has reported the following error: Please refer to Samples\Setup\HTML\ConfigDetails.htm document for further information.

    ... which isn't too helpful since the Microsoft SDKs\Windows\7.1\ directory I assume it's talking about doesn't exist after the installation rolls back. It doesn't seem to be in the ISO either.

    When I first attempted installation, I had VS 2010 SP1 installed. When it first failed, I rolled back SP1, same error. Then I uninstalled VS 2010 altogether, still no change. I'm on Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 with .NET 3.5 and 4 installed.

    Here are the bits from the (very long) installation log that seem relevant:

    From the middle (a similar message to this is repeated many times) 

    Action start 11:39:58: DDSE_CA_Uninstall_InstallExecuteSequenceStarts_amd64.

    08/09/12 11:39:58 DDSet_Warning: Setup failed while calling 'getDLLName'. System error: Cannot create a file when that file already exists.

    From the end:
