I realize this is an old topic but I couldn't find an answer to my question and this thread was the closest I could get. I attempted to pass a value on the command line to change the value of a project macro. However this method caused a temporary macro to be created instead. From reading the thread and the links this is expected. Is there any way other than some workaround (registry/external file) to define a project macro on the command line?
