Support nmake flags and VS command line prompt switches to build with v110_xp
You claim you reintroduced XP target support into VS 2012.
In fact, you only allow the XP target for IDE projects, but not for build scripts or makefiles (.mak)
Please introduces this missing feature soon, since nearly every application includes a buildscript/makefle based dependency like boost or OpenSSL.

...but, yeah, it would be nice if the IDE offered this. If nothing else, it would reassure me that it will still work after the next update.
