The following patches should be in the source tree under GCC_XML/VcInstall:

Original VC8 Express:

Original VC8 Full:

Patched VC8 Express (sp1):

Patched VC8 Full (sp1):

The patches are applied by copying the headers from your installation to 
a support directory and then running a patch tool with some of the above 
input files.  If the patch is failing then clearly you have a different 
version of the input headers than any of the above patches supports. 
What is the exact sequence of products (with versions and languages) 
that you installed?
