      Description

      The Qt visual studio plugin will cause the build to stop and an error message to be displayed if any project in the solution does not have the Qt project settings set correctly such that there is no Qt version assigned for the project. This is of course a very reasonable error. HOWEVER in a solution with a large number of sub projects it would be beneficial useful to see which project was in error. The wording of the error message is completely unhelpful and is obviously suffering from a mistaken impression that we all write hello world applications which really is not a true reflection of reality! After observing this error message I find myself having to inspect the Qt project settings of perhaps every project in the solution in order to locate and correct the offender. There can be many dozens of these so it wastes a considerable amount of time. If the plugin were to simply add the name of the offending project then the error message would be more useful and helpful.
