If a project contains full paths, rather than relative paths, to source files, those files will not be individually compilable in the IDE (Build>Compile). 

A full solution build (Build>Build Solution) is successful.

Note about included sample project: It was generated by the project wizard, then I modified the test.vcxproj file to use a full path to test.cpp. Line 90 was changed from this:
    <ClCompile Include="test.cpp" />
to this:
    <ClCompile Include="C:\test\test\test.cpp" />

This hand-editing simulates the way some project generators (e.g. CMake) create project files.

FWIW, this looks related to issue #635294 previously reported for VS 2010:

I can also report that the VS 11 developer preview did not exhibit the behavior reported here, but I can reproduce it with the VS 11 RC.
