Using Visual Studio 2012 and building from the command line using devenv using Platform toolset v100 for the project, the command fails with the following error "The operation could not be completed. The parameter is incorrect."

Greetings hype261,
    To get the desired behavior, please use MSBuild on your project's .vcxproj file by typing the following command into the prompt:
-msbuild YourProjectName.vcxproj

The /project option can take a display name. It seems that the issue is that the display name gets an "(Visual Studio 2010)" suffix in this case. I was able to make this work with:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0>devenv <path to my sln> /project "<project name> (Visual Studio 2010)" /projectconfig "Release|Win32" /Build�

So if you are building from nmake adding devenv Test.sln /build Debug /project Test.vcxproj seems to work. It still doesn't work from the command line.
