You don't need to (read "shoudn't") edit these files yorself. Insetad, go to the "Build" menu and select "Configurations". Click the "Add" button to add new configurations.

I'm not sure that this script has a public name, it is a Microsoft proprietary format.  Perhaps other than landing a position with Microsoft in the development tools group, the only way to understand them is lots and lots of study.

thanx for the response.
OK if i'm adding a new mode by BUILD/CONFIGURATIONS/ADD there's no change in the .dsp file of the project as from before.any idea where this change is reflected.

Commented:
You need to close the project. Only then DevStudio saves the changes to the dsp file,

Many tools like Visual Test Tool (Rational product) have successfully integrated into developer studio. So dsp and .dsw format is available(I don't know where).
Unloading (like closing ) rewrites the .dsp file.
If U modify  .dsp file VC puts a wrapper class round it.
