Treat Warnings as Errors

In a previous post I mentioned the importance of fixing compiler warnings. I forgot about a useful project setting in Visual Studio that will cause all build warnings to display as errors instead. From the project's properties page, select the Build tab. Under "Treat warnings as errors," set the value to "All." While this may be difficult to justify on existing projects with hundreds of warnings, this is something that should be set on all new projects.
