I have a main project with a reference to another project (a static library). The main project has multiple release configurations and the referenced project has a single release configuration.
Building the main project in Visual Studio works fine (both project belongs to the same solution), but with MSBuild it says "error MSB8013".
[MainProject trunk] $ cmd.exe /C " chcp 1252 & "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2022\BuildTools\MSBuild\Current\Bin\msbuild.exe" /p:CL_MPCount=6 "/p:Configuration=Release Config2" /p:Platform=x64 MainProject.vcxproj " && exit %%ERRORLEVEL%%

Project "C:\Program Files (x86)\Jenkins\workspace\MainProject trunk\MainProject.vcxproj" (1) is building "C:\Program Files (x86)\Jenkins\workspace\MainProject trunk\Libs\LibProject\LibProject.vcxproj" (2) on node 1 (default targets).
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2022\BuildTools\MSBuild\Microsoft\VC\v170\Microsoft.CppBuild.targets(437,5): error MSB8013: This project doesn't contain the Configuration and Platform combination of Release Config2|x64.
MSBuild seems to assume that the configuration name is the same for both projects. I suppose I could add more configurations to match the names, but that's a really ugly solution. Is there anyway to specify the configuration name for the referenced project, or how can I get around this?
