Canvassing to get Microsoft to provide the option to stop on the first error

For all sort of good reasons, it would be great to have the option to stop a build in C++ or a compilation in C# at the first error; there are a lot of scenarios where we would save a lot of time (and therefore money).

It seems Microsoft hasn't been keen on solving those issues for years, and while it is possible to find work around on certain circumstances using macros (calling DTE.ExecuteCommand("Build.Cancel")), it would be a good idea advising Microsoft to revert his opinion about the severity of those issue.

If you have a Microsoft Connect account, when available please invest a minute on voting those issues:
From my own point of view they both deserve 5 stars.

Thank you,
