|I can not believe how badly they have screwed the pooch on this. I've posted about this before and submitted bug reports and and they have done it yet again. With the 17.4.4 update (I think it was) Visual Studio's batch build option lost the ability to remember which of your build targets you want to build. They then fixed it a release or two later. With the 17.5.0 update it was broke again and fixed again at the next release. Yesterday they released 17.6.0 and this is broken again.
For me, this is a major pain in the backside. I have one solution with 24 projects, another with 40, and several more with 10. Now I have to waste a considerable amount of time selecting the desired build targets whenever I load one of those or I build them all and that wastes even more time.
I am so infuriated right now that I think I will wait until tomorrow to update my bug report. It won't matter very much because this is an issue raised by quite a number of people. One guy remarked that he gave up on it and has resorted to batch files. I am dang nearly at that point myself.
Actually, what I should be doing is waiting until I see what new and annoying bugs there are with each new release before I do any updates. I certainly will in the future.
ETA: 17.6.3 was released today and it is still broken. A corporate representative posted on 25 May that the issue is fixed and awaiting release.
ETA: 17.7.0 was released today and it is FIXED! At long, long last. It was still broken in releases 17.6.4 and 17.6.5 so this is very welcome news.
ETA: they have released versions 17.7.1, 17.7.2, and 17.7.3 and it wasn't broken on any of them. I have to state that I am very, very surprised but in a good way.
ETA: While 17.7.3 did not break this option, it changed a whole bunch of my settings and it has been very annoying resetting them.
