I think this is the same problem reported in 0008170, but the solution proposed here looks much simpler.

Where in the .vcproj file does the ToolFiles element go? Can you attach an example?

I want this resolved for all other versions of VS as well and have attached examples for VS2008 and VS2010/12/13. One project file with and one without the ASM rules enabled for easy diffing.

I think VS2005 should be equal to the VS2008 version, but don't have that old version anymore.

The VS2010 version is exactly the same for VS2012 and VS2013 as well.

If you want to test this in VS yourself, just create a new empty project. Right click the project and depending on the VS version use either 'Custom Build rules...' or 'Build Customizations...' and enable the MASM rules.

This has now been implemented as linked in 0008170:0036668. I'm resolving this issue as a duplicate of 0008170, so further discussion can go there.
