  Yes. MSVC project system have two way to setup project dependency:
"Project Dependencies" and "Project References". I don't know what the
except the project dependencies are stored in the solution file (.sln)
and project
references are stored in the project file (.vcproj). If I create
solution with 2 projects
(static library with exported function and executable project which is
uses that
exported function) and setup dependency or reference (or both) then MSVC
the executable with the library implicitly.

  We have the following dependencies:
- .stdlib depends on .configure;
- util_exec depends on .configure;
- .rwtest, util_localedef, util_locale, all examples projects depends on
- .stdcxx_utils depends on util_exec, util_localedef, util_locale;
- .stdcxx_examples depends on all examples projects and util_exec;
- all tests projects depends on .stdlib and .rwtest;
- .stdcxx_tests depends on all tests projects and util_exec;
- all locales projects depends on util_localedef;
- .stdcxx_locales depends on all locales projects;
- all locale tests projects depends on util_exec, util_locale,
- .stdcxx_testlocales depends on all locale tests projects.

  All dependencies established using both project dependencies and
project references
when possible (MSVC7.0 doesn't support project references; MSVC 7.1 and
MSVC 8.0 doesn't support project references in non-C++ projects
.stdcxx_utils, .stdcxx_examples, .stdcxx_tests, .stdcxx_locales,
all locales projects and all locale tests projects);

  The example shows that both projects are trying to be build.

  BTW when single project is built, the all source files are compiled,
even if some errors
were found in the first compiled source file. I think situation with
building the solution
with a couple of projects is the same.
