In a Lounge post a couple of weeks ago, I asked about using Windows 10 to develop C++ for Linux. VS Code seemed to be a clear winner, so I'll likely switch to it someday. What's blocking me is builds, for which I use VS2017.

For WSL, MS recommends CMake. That looks to be about as fun as vi, so you'd think MS would provide a tool for converting VS project files to CMake. Think again. Mad | :mad:

But I did find a tool[^] that supposedly does it. What it generated seemed to do most of what was needed, but it failed on a shared properties file that controls various compiler and linker settings. So I'm stuck with VS2017 until this tool gets fixed or MS gets their act together. Porting to Linux isn't urgent, so I'd rather wait than struggle with CMake.
