Description
Currently we only support creation of Visual Studio projects upto Visual Studio .NET 2003 aka VC++ v 7.10. Need to update project creation to support Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 including the free VS Express editions.

Even though Visual Studio comes with built-in project conversion it is better to update project conversion for these reasons
1) Code consistency
2) Compilation flags for .NET 2003 project are not the same as for 2005/2008 compilers when command line/makefiles are used
3) Dumpbin tool (used for vm.def creation) dumps all data (a lot of data) to output window of IDE and this slows down compilationa and makes log unreadable.
