when there's an import for a common props file in a VS project file like this:
the output window shows an error for every project in the solution that has this common props file included:
myproject.vcxproj: background build ERROR: The imported project "D:\common.props" was not found. Confirm that the expression in the Import declaration "\common.props" is correct, and that the file exists on disk. D:\myrootdir\common\myproject\myproject.vcxproj
instead doesn't work either: the error still shows up, but this time for D:\myrootdir\common\myproject\common.props not being found instead of D:\common.props
So I tried to use a Directory.Build.props file instead in the source root folder and removed the import from all the vcxproj files. This gives however the error
in the output window.
I've reproduce this by creating a new project with the project wizard (Qt Quick application). When the wizard finishes, no other changes are necessary. But both adding the import statement or copying a Directory.Build.props file give the same error output.
