    Please try to fix the errors by using the solutions mentioned in the link you provided.

    I quote them below:

    1. Make sure you installed the MIDL compiler when you installed the latest Windows SDK. It should appear under "Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0\Bin".
    Note: To install the MIDL compiler, you need to select Developer Tools / Windows Development Tools / Win32 Development Tools in the Windows SDK setup wizard. (At least, as of RC1.)
    2. In Visual Studio, under Tools > Options > Projects and Solutions > VC++ Directories > Executable Files, add
        x:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0\bin
    to the top of the list.
