Imports EnvDTE  
Imports Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine  

Public Module Module1  
    Sub Test()  
        Dim prj As VCProject  
        Dim cfgs, tools As IVCCollection  
        Dim cfg As VCConfiguration  
        Dim tool As VCCLCompilerTool  
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object  
        cfgs = prj.Configurations  
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)  
        tool = cfg.Tools("VCCLCompilerTool")  
        tool.GeneratePreprocessedFile = preprocessOption.preprocessYes  
    End Sub
