    Hi Deepak,

    Error Description:

    The Expression "[Microsoft.Build.Utilities.ToolLocationHelper]::GetPlatformSDKLocation(Windows, 7.0)" can not be evaluated. The disc structure is corrupted and unreadable. C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.Targets

    The error indicates ToolLocationHelper.GetPlatformSDKLocation Method: Given a target platform identifier and a target platform version, search the default SDK locations for the platform SDK for that target platform. It is possible that Visual Studio installation required a machine restart to finish.

    Hi acmedeepak,

    I can see that you go an error,"The disc structure is corrupted and unreadable".

    here I want to confirm with you that are you able to open this location using file explorer? if you did not try that then try it.

    if you get the same error then it is possible that your drive is corrupted.

    try to open command prompt and type command 'chkdsk c: /r'.

    then press enter.

    you can also try to click on that drive then click on 'tools' then 'error check'. it will find for error and try to correct it.

    if you have any backup for the project then you can try to copy that backup and try to place it on any other drive and try to open it in visual studio.

    let us know that it is work for you or not.

    so that we can try to provide further suggestions if needed.

    Regards

    Deepak
