[fdo-internals] FDO env. variables

Hm, I am OK with provider. In Visual Studio I have different
configurations for different FDO version
and I don't need to change anything to compile provider.
Compiling provider for different FDO versions doesn't mean any
additional work for me.

I have additional work when I wan't to compile different version's of
FDO and MG.

And yes I want to do that from VS not command line and that applet I
would like to skip :)

Yes, that's what I do too.
I use FDO 3.2.0 and current SVN and today I added 3.2.2 Beta.
Sometimes I need to compile my provider using
different versions many times a day.

Some time ago I tried to configure FDO with Visual Studio Property
but I gave up. It would need to re-factor current building system

It's easy to use various versions if you build from command line only,
then setenvironment.bat script should do the job,
but if you use VS projects and it's not easy then.

Summarizing, I have system-wide environment variables defined as


And if I want to change FDO version, I only update FDOCORE variable
applet in:
My Compyter -> Properties -> Advanced -> Environment Variables
