These .props files are used for property sheet files created by the SDK. They contain build tool settings and user-defined macros, which are saved as project configuration during the development.

To create a .props project property sheet in Visual Studio, select View → Other Windows → Property Pages from the menu bar. This will prompt the the Property Manager window in the IDE. There you can choose "Add New Project Property Sheet" option.

The .props property sheets can be applied to multiple projects since their properties are inheritable. The .props files are using standard XML formatting.

Visual Studio automatically converts the .vcprops files into .props files when converting projects. But there may be small conversion problems or incompatibilities with special characters in macros.
