Visual Studio Project Builder is a tool to help manage the building of many Visual Studio solutions.
If you have been building software projects for some time, you've probably got several solutions that contain projects that need to be built. You may even be using multiple versions of Visual Studio, from Visual Studio 6 through to Visual Studio 2017. Visual Studio Project Builder will coordinate building projects for all of these different versions of Visual Studio.
At Software Verify we have projects that need to be built by all versions of Visual Studio. We also have different projects that have the same name in different solutions - Visual Studio won't let you load those into one Solution. But that's not a problem with Visual Studio Project Builder, it will manage the building of these projects with ease.
Currently we support .vcxproj (Visual Studio 2010-2017), .vcproj (Visual Studio 2002-2008) and .dsp (Visual Studio 6) file formats.
The files managed by a Visual Studio project are C and C++ source files, C and C++ header files, C#, VB.Net, F#, J#, and resource files. We've also added some file extensions that are not typically used by Microsoft, just in case someone is using these variants with Visual Studio. A full list of supported file extensions is shown below.

Various warnings and errors may occur when compiling and linking your code. Some of these are harmless and can be ignored. To allow you to ignore specific messages we have provided a filter for warning and error messages.
