Description
Currently the Visual Studio project creation scripts (make\windows\create.bat and friends) do not work well with VS2010 and could be made easier to use. In addition, the development launcher should be used from inside Visual Studio.

Here is a list of proposed changes:
- Update create.bat to take only the argument of the JDK, everything else should be standardized or inferred
- Do not copy the jvm.dll into the JDK, instead the updated launcher (hotspot.exe) can be used to run the jvm from inside the build directory
- Change the folder layout of the VS project so it looks like the directory layout
- Enable multi-processor builds in VS
- Shorten build times by not running build_vm_def.sh if not needed
- Make sure the VS2010 conversion wizard has no warnings when converting the VS2008 project

For the time being we should not generate VS2010 projects directly but depend on the VS2008->VS2010 conversion wizard, although we should aim for it in the future.
