FxCOp / Windows SDK install horrors RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I search for the FxCOP installer. I have the installer in my SDK 7.0 directory. I install it. I run it. I open the fxcop project i create on another machine.

    The FxCOP project is too new for my current fxcop to install. it tells me to get the latest. Fine.

    I go to the site to get the latest, and the installer is a fucking readme.txt telling me I have eto install all of the Windows SDK 7 for windows. I am confused since I already have Windows SDK 7. Apparently it is SDK 7.1 that I need, yet there is no SDK 7.1 installer. I go ahead and run the SDK7 installer, choosing just the .NET Tools option to get FxCop.

    The install fails. There's a button to click on a log file. useless stack trace is present. Log also tells me to view a help file that is installed by the SDK installer. The help file wasn't installed becuase the installer failed, whcih is why i'm in the log file. So, what can I do? 

    There's a million blog posts bitching about this whole process, but you have to do this. There's no stand alone installer for FxCop. What if I want to use FxCOp on a machine not hooked up to the internet? Well, you're fucked if you do. thanks Microsoft.

    I also checked the MSDN developer download page since I"m a member. No FxCop. No SDK installer.

  • Hi Papa,

    I’m afraid that it is not the correct forum about this issue, since this forum is to discuss Visual C#. You can consider posting it in Visual Studio Code Analysis and Code Metrics  forum for more efficient responseshttp://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?forum=vstscode
