Previously in a C++ native project, one could add dependencies to static libraries (.lib) and dynamic libraries (.dll) by right clicking on the References entry in the project tree.
Now it asks for a winmd file and if I want to select another project I am forced to add the project to the consuming solution. Why this? How can I create a winmd file for a C++ native project to be used as a reference? or how can I reference a project in another solution?
