Visual C++ project file is building in alphabetical order

Hello everyone,

Can someone tell me why my VC++ project file gets build in alphabetical order when using VBP? If I build it in the Visual Studio everything is OK.

Is there a setting that I'm missing?

For VC6, it is possible that the projects would get built in a
different order by VBP than in VC if dependencies are not defined; do you have the necessary dependencies defined in the workspace (Project | Dependencies)? If so, please post (or send to

1) The info from Help | About | Install Info in VBP
2) The .dsw file in question
3) The .bld with the step that builds the workspace
4) The build log after checking 'Log dependencies found in workspace' on the Make VC6 Options tab.

For VC 7.0+, the Make VS.NET action invokes the devenv command-line build tool for performing builds, so if it's building in a different order than the IDE, you would need to open a support incident with MS about that (check the 'Display compiler command-line' checkbox on the Options tab to see the command-line it is invoking).
