I'd guess that Visual Studio does not know where your actual target
executable resides, and thus can't check its timestamp.

This might help: Try going to "Project/Properties/Configuration
Properties/NMake" and set "Output" to the full path of the target
executable. Should be something like e.g. <project root>\bin\<your
target>\msvc-x.x\debug\threading-multi\<your target>.exe" for the debug
configuration. Similar for release variant.

(The above is for VS 2008, should be similar for other versions)
