2010-09-04 Saturday - "mspdb100.dll is missing"

I spent some time this evening upgrading some of my Microsoft Visual Studio tools, and installed the latest
Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4 
[The Windows SDK provides tools, compilers, headers, libraries, code samples, and a new help system that developers can use to create applications that run on Microsoft Windows], which you can download here:
Web Install
ISO image

While attempting to test the command line utilities, I encountered the following error message popping up rather unexpectedly:

"mspdb100.dll is missing..."

A quick search found this posting on Microsoft Connect - which indicated that the directory where the IDE is installed simply needed to be added to the PATH.

On a side note, I recently installed PowerISO - and highly recommend it.
