This tool is great! It is easily the best solution I found to generate quickly a solution with multiple .vcxproj files.

If I can suggest a potential improvement, it would be to add the option to generate solution folders from the actual directory structure of the projects.

ie: In our case, we have different root folders for different parts of our system, each root folder containing descriptive folders like "apps" "dlls", etc... It would be great to preserve the same structure in the solution itself. I guess you could for instance start from the folder given as project root path, and go X levels deep to generate the folders. I hope I'm clear enough...

Thanks a lot and congratulations for such a useful tool.

This tool would be great if you could create new projects within the solutions

Hi and thank you for your feedback. I am afraid what you suggest could be a part of a different tool because generating projects manifest files and solution files are completely different matters. Moreover, project generation often requires additional information like type of projects (there are various project types for C# source files). I am not aware of any tool that is capable of solving this in automated manner.
