digitalmars.D.ide - VisualD settings for debugging an executable

Hi!

Preface: I only returned to Visual Studio recently, haven't used 
it at all in years, so I might be asking something stupidly 
obvious.

I'm building code with `dmd -i`, and using VisualD for debugging 
the executable, i.e.

`devenv path_to_compiled.exe`

It does work, however IntelliSense highlights some issues, 
apparently since there's no project file where compiler options 
would've been set. For example, it reports modules being 
"specified twice on command line", highlights the shortened 
method syntax arrow, shows some other "errors" which are not 
actually errors. It's not that big of a deal, but it'd be nice to 
reduce that noise. Is there a way to do that without creating an 
actual project file?

Related to that, I can't seem to figure out even how to set a 
generic import path (i.e. tell it to include current working 
directory), and so I resorted to just adding an absolute path, 
although I'm not versed in VS macros so perhaps there's one for 
doing at least that?
