Greetings! I was wondering how to speed up compiling. At work I am able to use Visual Studio 2005 and Intel C++ compiler for some customer reasons and here is my wish: I would like to have 4 equal projects with equal settings, just the compiler and the mode is different (debug/release). For example: Test_ms_debug Test_ms_release Test_ia_debug Test_ia_release I would like equal settings for all project. The problem is, I can far too easilty switch a compiler setting without knowing it. I would not want to allways import a make file and convert it to a project file. Is it possible to work with makefiles directly? For example: everything default except what I say is different?

Yes. You can set your project to a "makefile project" in the project configuration controls. You are then able to specify command-line strings for the build, clean, and rebuild actions (these typically will execute batch files that build the project using the desired makefile).
