In Visual Studio 2008 and earlier, I believe you could (by an unsupported method) allow one project to generate a precompiled header which other projects could then use. But I understand this is not possible, or only works in limited ways in VS 2010 and later.

Please add official support for allowing a precompiled header to be shared between projects.

As a nice to have it would also be ideal if more than one precompiled header could be used by a project so that both a shared and project specific precompiled header could be used.
