After I've taken a closer look at FDO projects for VC++ 2005,
I can answer myself that using Property Sheets won't be possible.
Environment variables like %FDOUTILITIES% are used in projects location
paths inside the solution file.
It's not possible to load the solution without these variables set as
user's or system environment and Property Sheets won't help here.
