I'm trying to find out more information about this setting and the piece
of code it controls. Non Windows devs can switch off now as it only
affects them by causing a warning about it not being used.

1) Is it still needed. All configurations, even the TC ones, have it
defaulting to off. This causes problems for VCE devs as the vstools
program controlled by it causes an error for them.
It's purpose appears to be to set the working directory for running the
.exe. However, the .exe runs just fine without it being set.

2) If it really is necessary, could we change the program run (vstools)
to something more compatible with all VC versions. Now the project files
are XML based, it should be possible to do this as part of autobuild
itself.
