There seems to be a bug in the project updating functions of VS2005/08: 
embedded \" char's in the .rc files always made a fatal error to the 
resource compiler (rc.exe), e.g.,

    "... LONG_NAME="Apache HTTP Server" ..."

If all the inner \" are replaced with \' (namely, "&quot;" to "&apos;"), 
then the updated project files (.vcproj) will be OK to compile.

Was this part of the problems with the makefile(s)?
