Whenever i build my Visual Studio project, the Incremental Linker File is placed in the exe output directory. I want it to instead go in the Debug or Release folder, hidden away where it doesn't annoy me.

The project uses Qt but i don't think that's the problem. I think it is because of how i have my project structure. I have the solution and project file in a "src" directory which is within the main project directory. Like so:

MyProject\
    src\
        blah\
        Release\
        Debug\
            << i want the ilk here
        MyProject.sln
        MyProject.vcproj
    data\
    MyProject.exe
    << but instead, it's here
    etc...


By setting various paths in the VS config, i have managed to get most intermediate files output to the Release or Debug directories, but i cannot figure out how to tell it where to put the .ilk.
