I am using Visual Studio 2012 RC (pretty much same as Visual Studio 2010) and I'm having some issues with includes. Never really understood how they work, always having problems, sadly. I have 3 projects
Project1 include paths: "." (project's directory, some files are in folders and it causes a lot include errors)
Project2 include paths: "..\Project1" (first project's directory)
Project3 include paths: ".." (solution directory)

Project2 includes some files from Project1:
#include <File1.h>

Project3 includes some files from Project2:
#include <Project2\File2.h> // we have solution folder in include list, gotta specify project folder

Everything seems fine, but when I try to compile Project3, it cannot find Project1 includes, which are included in Project2.
Adding include path for Project1 in Project3 seems wrong, as I'm not using it directly. I hoped someone could help me out to sort this.

Thank you in advance. Edited by Ripiz

If Project3 needs Project1's include file it kinda is using it directly. Rewrite the code so that Project2\File2.h doesn't include File1.h (try to write it so you can include it from File2.cpp instead).
