Cannot determine the location of visual Studio VS common Tools folder.

I got the error 'Cannot determine the location of visual Studio VS common Tools folder.
'Svcutil' is not recognized as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file' while trying to create proxy class in Visual studio 2010 command prompt(Always run the Commandprompt as run as administrator by right clicking onthat visual studio command prompt tag select Run as administrator) by the help of the tool svcutil.exe for one wcf application.

I find one solution for that one
Actualy in my system in this path like c:\programfiles\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC , svcutil.exe is not there.

so first check for that one Actually in case of visual studio 2010 , check the path like
c:\Program files\Microsoft SDKS\Windows\v7.0A\bin ,svcutil.exe is available here.
So insted of the firsrt path, give the second one like

c:\Program files\Microsoft SDKS\Windows\v7.0A\bin> Svcutil.exe http://localhost:54817/Service1.svc (i.e the service path)

Then this will generate two files in the same path Bin folder proxy class file and other one is the config file i.e the output config file according to the name given by you only..
