Display build time in Visual Studio

Just got the new VM server ready, but I’m curious about how fast it is in my general use case. So I managed to find the settings to let Visual Studio show build time of projects.


For general Visual Studio solution, goto menu bar:
* Tools / Options / Projects and Solutions / Build and Run
* Set MSBuild project build output verbosity to Normal

MSBuild build time verbosity


For more detail in VC++ projects, goto menu bar:
* Tools / Options / Projects and Solutions / VC++ Project Settings
* Set Build Timing to Yes
