How to enable menu “Create GUID” in Visual Studio 2008

If you need to create a GUID in VS2008 but this menu is disabled then you are facing the same problem as I did. Probably some options were disabled during installation. Fortunately it is easy to fix.

Copy two files guidgen.exe and Uuidgen.Exe form
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\bin
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\Tools
and you don’t even need to restart your Visual Studio.
