Restoring an old friend – Visual Studio 2008 Create GUID tool

Remember to recreate a link to guidgen.exe (Guid generator tool) after installing Visual Studio 2008. For some reason it’s no longer out of the box?


  1. Choose the Tools -> External Tools...
  2. Title: Create &GUID
  3. Click the Browse (…) button and find the guidgen.exe in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bin\ folder.
