Common items 
Value from <parent configuration or option set> 
Indicates the value in the parent build configuration or referenced option set. If you change this value here, the change will potentially affect the Base configuration (that is, if you click OK on the Project->Options dialog and subsequently build your project).  
Indicates whether inheritance (from a parent configuration) is on or off for the option. To control inheritance, click the option, and then open the associated generic list dialog box by clicking the Ellipsis that appears. The Inherit values from parent configuration checkbox controls whether your current build configuration inherits the values listed in the lower box of the generic list dialog box.  
<any item in red print> 
Indicates that this option has secondary options available. To view the secondary options, click the + sign in front of the option in red.  
<any item in boldface print> 
Indicates that the value of this option has been changed from the value in the parent configuration or referenced option set.  
Ellipsis Pop-Up Button 
Appears after you click an option whose value is one of the following:
  • An ordered list of values that you enter and then move into the desired order (such as a list of defines or directories). Click Ellipsis to invoke the generic ordered list dialog box.
  • A filename, a directory or a folder name. Click Ellipsis to invoke the standard Open file or Browse for folder dialog box.
