Make VS action uses incorrect MSBuild
 
There is a build script to build 2 projects for MSVS2008 (2 .vcproj files + 1 .sln) and a few projects for MSVS2013 (only .vcxproj files). To build vcproj a "Make VS 2008" step is used. To build vcxproj a "Make VS2012" step is used. Till today everything was fine. But today I have installed path KB976656 (http://thehotfixshare.net/board/inde...showfile=11640) for VS2008 to fix fatal error C1859. Afterwards the vcproj is compiled ok, but when running step "Make VS 2012" on vcxproj, incorrect version of devenv is used:
01.06.2015 13:37:08: Building subroutine step 19 - window...

All vcxproj-files starts with following lines:




If I use "Override default DEVENV/MSBUILD/VCBUILD location" field (C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\12.0\Bin\MSBuild.exe) it is also successfully compiled. But I'am looking for a solution to don't override default msbuild location because I suspect there will some problems later after migration to VS2015.

So my questions:
- Encountered anyone with this problem before?
- How to resolve it?
- How VBP determines which version of msbuild has to be used?
- Is there a way to define a global (only one time) option for all steps "Make VS 2012"?

As I see in (http://www.kinook.com/Forum/showthread.php?t=4500) VB analyzes sln files only to determine version of msbuild which has to be used. It seems it is a root cause of my problem as I don't have sln files for lots of my projects. Only vcxproj-files. :(
I hope VB team will fix it and in next versions the VB will analyze vcxproj-files as well.

It seems this issue is fixed in VBP 8.7. But still as make it work in VBP 8.2 without "Override default DEVENV/MSBUILD/VCBUILD location" field? Setting correct vcvars before calling visbuildpro.exe is not working.

Tested in VBP 8.5: it works!!!
Ok, I will update VBP.
Thanks everybody.
