I have the following problem. I am not using Visual Studio, but using MSBuild is pretty comfortable for me. So, I have *.vcxproj file and I'd like to built the corresponding project using Intel C++ Composer XE (mentioned project depends on MKL & IPP). I have Microsoft SDK 7.1 installed, so It seemed easy for me. But, it appears that installer of Intel C++ Composer XE does not installs necessary *.targets and *.props file (used by MSBuild or Visual Studio) if I do not have Visual Studio. I don't see any reason why it should be so. Can anybody give some explanation or recomendation? From my point of view I have all necessary tools installed (MSBuild and Microsoft SDK are free), and I do not want to buy Visual Studio, because it is not required for my project.
