fatal error C1093: API call 'ImportFile' failed '0x80070003' : ErrorMessage: The system cannot find the path specified.

If you encounter this error when compiling a c++ source, then you probably moved you're project from one computer to another and you're using precompiled headers. To fix this problem, simply delete the stdafx.obj in the Release or Debug folder of your project.

EDIT:

You can also solve this problem by going to the Build Menu > Clean Solution.
