Visual Studio 2003 "Project configuration(s) out of date ... Would you like to build them?"

This question was asked before and the answer was basically "you can't do that".  I find that answer hard to believe.

Using Visual Studio 2003, I edit my C++ program and press F5.  VS2003 raises a dialog asking whether I want to build before running.

Of course I do.  And 2005 doesn't ask -- it just does the build.

How do I configure VS2003 to stop asking me -- just build the project?

I have looked in the options and don't see anything.  I am fully aware of _why_ the project needs to be built.  I'm using VS2003 because my partner is using VS2003, so would prefer not to migrate this project to VS2005.

How do I configure VS2003 to stop asking me -- just build the project?

Thank you.

In VS2005 this is done by the following way:
Tools - Options - Projects and Solutions - Build and Run.
Combobox "On Run, when projects are out of date:". Select Always build.

I hope there is something like this in VS 2003.

AlexFM,

Thank you.  VS2003 doesn't have the "Build and Run" dialog.  I can see it in VS2005, but VS2003 simply doesn't have it.

There have been no additional responses and it seems that AlexFM made the best possible response.  Grade A because no better response seems possible.
