Make action not using environemt macros

I have set a number of macros and checked the "Add to environment variables when calling external programs" check box. However when I run the Make VS.NET action, these macros have not been added to the environment variables. Is there a workaround to this?

Many thanks,

That works ok here. For instance, using VBP 6.4 and VS.NET 2003, building the attached test.bld produces output of:

6/6/2007 8:15:08 AM: --------------------Starting Build: 'test.bld'--------------------
6/6/2007 8:15:08 AM: Building project step 'Project steps'...

Created Temporary macro 'ABC'
Environment variable updated from macro

Please ZIP and send or post:

Which demonstrate the problem
