When I access the property pages of a project with Visual C++ 2010, in the 'Configuration Properties | VC++ Directories' sub-tab there's an 'Include Directories' property. Under 'Configuration Properties | C/C++ | General' there's a property 'Additional Include Directories'.
Is there a difference between the 2? What are the consequences if I put a directory in 1 property not the other, or if I put it in both?


I don't think it really matters to the compiler which place you put the paths, or even if you put the same path in both places. Its just a matter of organization for you. I put project-specific paths in Additional Include Directories, and compiler-specific paths in C++ Directories.
