Create GUID disabled in Visual Studio 2008

Just when I wanted to create a GUID i found that the ‘Create GUID’ menu was disabled in the Tools menu.



Found that I have to copy over the following files from “Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bin” folder to the “Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\Tools” folder.

  1. guidgen.exe
  2. uuidgen.exe

I am not sure why the files were missing, may be there was an issue while installing Visual Studio 2008.

I found this workaround solution at :
