error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'wrl.h': No such file or directory_ RRS feed

  • Question

  • While the windows 8 consumer preview is up and running properly(as far as I can tell), I downloaded and installed (and repaired after this prob) VS11 Dev preview, Every time I install a sample project, I get this error.

    At the start page, I start new project -> online -> choose one (I've been choosing DirectX ones) it installs just fine but always gives me this compile error.

    I'm not sure what is wrong. Can anybody think of something I may have missed?

  • After reinstalling Windows 8 Consumer Preview & reinstalling VS11 beta, It all works normally and my issue has gone away. Not sure where I went wrong but it works properly now.
