Use solution folder as default when adding a new project to the solution

New Solutions are configured for Release mode

Build and Run options
The Clarion IDE supports Builds on a separate thread or a separate process. By default, the IDE Builds on a separate process. On multi-CPU or multi-core CPU machines this will normally improve the performance of the system as the Build action will normally execute on a different CPU that is different to the one the IDE is using. However, due to the added overhead of interprocess communication, it may be that on some machines it is better to run the Build as a separate thread within the IDE. To disable the Build activity in a separate process, uncheck the Run build as a separate process(es) rather than as a thread check box.
Check the Show error list pad if build finishes with errors to show the Error list by default on a Build error. If unchecked, the Output window will display instead with a more verbose error listing.
Select the type of messaging output that you want during the Build process. The following options are currently available:
|Only display “Build started.”, “Build finished successfully.” messages, plus errors and warnings.
|Same as Quiet
|Same as Quiet, plus messages indicating which source files are being compiled.
|Same as Normal, plus details about which files are included when compiling and which files are linked when linking
|Same as Detailed
