Hi

In visual studio, under the property pages, I see a command line that goes something  like this:

$(SOMETHING_BIN_PATH)\something.exe ......blah blah

How can i expand to see what the $(SOMETHING_BIN_PATH) is?

In linux, i could do a echo $SOMETHING_BIN_PATH and it would display the entire expansion. How can i do this in visual studio?
