Performing Parallel Project Builds

Visual Studio* provides a parallel project build feature, allowing you to build multiple projects within a solution simultaneously, using separate threads. The Visual Studio* IDE initially sets the number of parallel project builds to equal the number of CPUs. To change this setting, do the following:
  1. Choose
    Tools
    Options
    Projects and Solutions
    .
  2. In the
    Build and Run
    property page, change the number in maximum number of parallel project builds and click
    OK
    .
For more information on using this feature, see the Microsoft MSDN* documentation.
