CUDA Compiler Error in Visual Studio 2012 Error MSB3721: The command "C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v5.5\bin\nvcc.exe"

I am very new to CUDA and parallel programming.  I was getting all kinds of errors in the beginning due wrong DLL,  LIB folder, Working directory etc.  However, the following error message was little confusing and misleading:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\V110\BuildCustomizations\CUDA 5.5.targets(592,9): error MSB3721: The command ""C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v5.5\bin\nvcc.exe" -gencode=arch=compute_10,code=\"sm_10,compute_10\" --use-local-env --cl-version 2012 -ccbin "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\VC\bin"  -IC:\OpenCV -IC:\OpenCV\build -IC:\OpenCV\build\include -IC:\OpenCV\build\include\opencv -IC:\OpenCV\build\x86 -IC:\OpenCV\build\x86\vc10 -IC:\OpenCV\build\x86\vc10\bin -IC:\OpenCV\build\x86\vc10\lib -I"C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v5.5\include" -I"C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v5.5\include"  -G   --keep-dir Debug -maxrregcount=0  --machine 32 --compile -cudart static  -g   -DWIN32 -D_DEBUG -D_CONSOLE -D_MBCS -Xcompiler "/EHsc /W3 /nologo /Od /Zi /RTC1 /MDd  " -o Debug\ "D:\Santhosh\Project\Cuda1-OLD\Cuda1\"" exited with code 2.

I found a lot of recommendation on the net about changing the compute type, hardware configuration  etc for resolving this issue.  In my case, I was missing the correct folder name in the Include Directories under VC++ Directories node.  Everything started working after I added the correct include directories.
