I've imported to VS2012 few old VisualStudio 2008 projects. The problem is that I cannot compile single file with command "Compile Ctrl+F7", although the full build does work OK, i.e Rebuild of solution or Build of selected project.
I've also found a workaround. After import in vcxproj there were paths to sources like these ones:
<ClCompile Include=".\main.cpp" />
<ClCompile Include=".\test\test.cpp" />
when I removed the ".\" from the beginning of path, then everything works fine:
<ClCompile Include="main.cpp" />
<ClCompile Include="test\test.cpp" />
Now I am able to run compile on individual file.
Although it wasn't very convenient because I have about 50 such old VS2008 projects and had to write a script to perform these changes on all vcxprojs.
