I need a "pre build" step for a project using MS Visual C++ 6. There's
a file that has to be updated by an external program, /always/ - i.e.
it is not depending on any source file per se. I have tried to emulate
it using a custom build step and it works so long as it is depending on
something, but then it only gets built when that source changes. What I
need is a way to generate a source file (which should then be
recompiled during the actual following build) automaticlly on every

Does anyone know how to do that, if it's even possible in MSVC6?

Thanks in advance,
