Hello. I am on an x86 processor, trying to get at least the most basic thing to compile. having some issues.

I keep getting the error
[code]1>------ Build started: Project: test2, Configuration: Release Win32 ------
1>Compiling...
1>Project : error PRJ0003 : Error spawning 'cl.exe'.
1>Build log was saved at "file://c:\Users\Bryan\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\test2\test2\Release\BuildLog.htm"
1>test2 - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)
========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========[/code]This is after a fresh install.

I went to Tools -> Import and Exort settings and reset everthing to the default.

under Options > projects and solutions > vc++ directories the directories listed there look okay but i'm still a newbie..

I looked inside C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin I see no cl.exe there... only c1.dll and c1xx.dll. Is there supposed to be an x86 folder inside I only see 3 folders: 1033, amd64, x86_amd64. I don't think any of those I need to add to my direcotry list.

I did a search in program files and only found two cl.exe files: one inside amd64 and one inside x86_amd64. Amd I wrong or should there be more It almost looks like I am missing x86 stuff which I need... please help!! I am really stumped.

I installed visual studio 2008 *standard* Beta 2 on Windows Vista Business Ed

Also I want to note that during install when prompted which "features" to install I have it setup as follows:

Web Development
[ ] Visual Web Developer

Windows Development
[ ] Visual Basic
[x] Visual C++
[ ] Visual C#

Surely this isn't causing problems The only features I am interested in at this time are C++

berogon

Try this "features" setting

Web Development

[x] Visual Web Developer

Windows Development

[x] Visual Basic
[x] Visual C++
[x] Visual C#

Select Visual Basic will install compiler (cl2.dll, cl.exe, etc)

Select Visual C# will install PGO stuff

I don't know this is bug or not, but this works!
