I suggest you ...

recompile outdated PCH files automatically

After each VS update I receive a lot of "Fatal Error C1853" because of "The precompiled header was compiled with a previous compiler version. Try recompiling the header with the current compiler."
I would suggest, the compiler creating the PCH should simply recompile the PCH if this is required. On the otherhand why is a recompile necessary? For other files like OBJ it is not necessary.

    Yes! This error sucks big time! Totally unneeded one - the compiler causes it, the compiler can fix it - so just do it!

    For a compiler update the pch's in the build should automatically be cleaned out. It's annoying to upgrade and have your builds fail because of this.
