Sublime Text Build System
For anyone using Sublime Text as their editor here is a build system that should automatically build the entire project just like you would from the command window.

**NOTE - If you run Sublime text from the command line this will not work. You need to run it from the Shortcut.

How to use

-Go to Tools->Build Systems->New Build System
-Copy the following into the file and save it accordingly

{
"cmd": ["${file_path}/build.bat", "${file}"],
"file_regex": "^(..[^:]*):([0-9]+):?([0-9]+)?:? (.*)$",
"working_dir": "w:/build",
"selector": "source.c, source.cpp, source.c++"
}

-Select the new build system
-To build simply press F7

Thanks for the tip. It didn't quite work for me, maybe because I'm still just on day 004 and something changed later.

I got something else to work, which I will post in case it's useful to anyone.

I saved the build config as part of a sublime project config, so the equivalent portion to the OP is just the "build_system" part.

Sorry for the really long line. :)

Note the part where you have to replace "FULL/PATH/TO" ... also, I'm not currently using the "W:" drive with "subst", but you might have to add something to get the shell to switch to the "W:" drive in that case.

I don't use sublime so I may be wrong but it looks like this line is calling vsdevcmd.bat each time you compile, which will take some unnecessary time.

A solution would be to launch sublime from a command line window which as already called vsdevcmd.bat so you don't need to call it when you compile.
