I have bumped into this problem too on win7 before. the error was same. I had never got it on xp64. maybe you can get rid of it by compiling on xp.

After reading too many documents on google, I found info on "How to compile code for 64bit Application using MS VC++ Express edition(Which is totally free on Microsoft site).
Here is step by step
1. Install “Visual C++ 2010 Express”
2. Install “Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4″
3. Open your VC++ Project, go to “Properties” > “Configuration Properties” > “General” and change “Platform Toolset” from the default “v100″ to “Windows7.1SDK”

Using This trick i m able to compile Plug-in (From Devkit Folder)For Maya 2011 64bit,Just by drag & drop *.sln file from Devkit>>Plug-ins folder.That means ,now my MS VC++ 2010 express is compatible to compile source code for Maya 64bit by this way,But still i m getting that error ("Creating Project 'Hello World'...Project Creation failed" ),when i try to create new project with MayaPluginWizard selection.So,tell me whts wrong i m doing Or tell me How different way i can start project.Reply ASAP.
Thank you
