Visual Studio 2008 Pro SP1: Error spawning "rc.exe" finally FIXED!
This is my first VS2008 installation and I bumped to this error. Wasting much time googling the net showed bunch of lame solutions like "reboot pc, reinstall windows and etc..." I thought it is Windows 7's incompatibility, however the problem is easily solved by adding additional component during install/reinstall... just check "Visual C++ Tools" (no need to select "Lookup", "Spy++" and "Win32 Tools", you can deselect them, if not needed)
So, this is to inform that VS2008 in the following selection is working fine (SP1 was applied separately):
Visual Studio 2008
VC++ (+mobile +visual cpp tools)
Visual Web Authoring
Everything is compiling now =)

Error spawning rc.exe solved
Although the title says "finally fixed" this thread has no helpfull solution for me.
I tried the suggestion of the original poster but it does not work.
I googled a lot and did not find nothing helpfull in any other blog, neither.
So I started my own investigations.
I solved the problem.
I published the solution on my homepage:
