   As I know there is no such thing and no one working on it.
   I think it is possible to do such generator for BB, but some time ago I was not able to develop
it, due to lack of understanding of overall design. Even now, when I build BB-like clone in pure C++
and know how design works, I doubt to be able to write MSVC project generator for BB. May be when
PythonBB will arrive somebody write one...

   If you *really* need MSVC project files than CMake may be alternative.
   Or you may to try my project Hammer - its very close to BBv2 syntax/design and capable to produce
MSVC 2005 project files. If you interested email me :).
