Use PackageReference in vcxproj

This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
Can you add support for the PackageReference markup from C++ and C++/CLI projects (.vcxproj)?

It would be more convenient than using a packages.config file.

    A major feature with PackageReference is the ability to choose a global packages folder.

    Also, upgrading nuget packages in a solution with a lot of projects takes ages - even when all projects reference exactly the same package(s)!

    This is a major issue when using vcpkg -> nuget -> vcxproj/C++/native projects.

    Yes, please add this feature

    In VS2017 there were many improvements for csproj. Please add some of these improvements to vcxproj
