Visual C++ comes with this function. Open your project, select the menu Project\Export Makefile..., it will generate a makefile (.mak).

 Turns out you can either:

1) Write some VBScript to run msdev with the project on the command line and compile it
2) Use an Addin sample shipped with VC called AutoBuild.

What "feedback" do you want?

AUTOBUILD works, and does what you want. But it causes the whole MSDEV.EXE shell to load, run, and quit each time you invoke it. It's terribly expensive. But it's the only way to do what you want.

I think you'd be better off exporting a makefile. You can flip an option in devstudio to do it automatically whenver the project files change.

Thanks Mike for pointing out the Export Always Option (Doh missed that one). Now if there was only some way to automatically have makefiles be checked in and out of sourcesafe.

Thanks To Gelbert for the links, he gets da points since Mike has a boatload already ;)
