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
