I just downloaded the USBView sample application...
...and I'm getting a cryptic error when compiling with Visual Studio 2010.
1>------ Rebuild All started: Project: usbview, Configuration: Win8 Debug Win32 ------
1>Build started 10/5/2012 11:58:11 AM.
error MSB8008: Specified platform toolset
(WindowsApplicationForDrivers8.0) is not installed or invalid. Please
make sure that a supported PlatformToolset value is selected.
1> 1>Time Elapsed 00:00:00.16
========== Rebuild All: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 skipped ==========
Any thoughts or ideas to resolve this would be appreciated. I'm using Windows 7, 32-bit. Thanks.

The page you linked says it requires VS2012.

Thanks, naraku. I was able to resolve the problem by installing Visual Studio 2012 Express and recommended components, removing the offending line from the Microsoft.Cpp.Platform.targets file (double-clicked error message), and compiling as Release.
