    MSVC 2010+ Projects: Update "Installation" Process · 85e7842f
    Chun-wei Fan authored
    Currently, due to the way that Visual Studio 2010+ projects are handled,
    the "install" project does not re-build upon changes to the sources, as it
    does not believe that its dependencies have changed, although the changed
    sources are automatically recompiled.  This means that if a part or more
    of the solution does not build, or if the sources need some other fixes
    or enhancements, the up-to-date build is not copied automatically, which
    can be misleading.
    Improve on the situation by forcing the "install" project to trigger its
    rebuild, so that the updated binaries can be copied.  This does trigger an
    MSBuild warning, but having that warning is way better than not having an
    up-to-date build, especially during testing and development.
