Conditionals in Property Sheets

I've since moved to using property sheets exclusively instead of wfMake and it's been going well. A bit more more typing but I like the fact that I can edit a bunch of includes and not have to regenerate the vcproj/vcxproj. The most time consuming part was going through all the projects and setting the right macros everywhere. But you only have to do it once.

It's one place to update everything and can be syntax highlighted and formatted quite neatly.

You end up with something like this. This is only an excerpt, the whole thing is quite huge. You can then string your macros any way you like. The fanciest bit of this is the conditionals at the top that I use because some sln's that include these projects are sometimes in different places, and there was no other way I could think of to correctly set the path.
