Initially designed for internal use, the PDB Project is now public on the VS Gallery Extension. PDB Project, as the name suggest, takes information contained in the .pdb to create a C++ project. Information includes all source files (.c, .cpp) used for building. It even includes sources from the libraries linked. Once created, the project will light up the IDE features. Intellisense, Find all Reference, Navigate To, etc. will work with the PDB project. In the current version of the tool, the produced project can't build, so it won't replace any existing build system.
