In VC7.1 IDE you select the Tools >> Options menu. Then select Projects >>
VC++ Build from the Tree View. Add ,*.ipp to the C/C++ File Extensions
property, then Ok. Note: any .ipp files that have been added to the project
will be compiled by default when ever you do a build. You need to manually
exclude the files from the build process. Select the .ipp files, then
Project >> Properties. Select Configuration >> General from the left
TreeView. Change Exclude From Build to Yes.

Sorry for not specifying this sooner, since I specifically added .ipp while
working with earlier versions of serialization library.

VC6 IDE requires editing the registry. If any one needs that I can dig
through and see what I did there as well.
