From my understanding Visual Studio 2005 always uses MFC8 automaticly, VS2008 MFC9 and VS2010 the MFC10.

Can use a newer Visual Studio Version and still link to an older MFC Version?

I searched the options and the project settings all over but I could not find any option about the MFC.

Yes.

In fact, in newer versions of Visual Studio (e.g., 2015,2017), you can even choose to build your projects using older toolsets without having to switch to an older version of Visual Studio.

I don't personally use the MFC, but you should be able to build with your desired version of the MFC by simply placing their include and library directories at the beginning of the respective path lists for the project directories.

I.e., under your project's property pages, go to [Configuration Properties] --> [VC++ Directories] , then append the desired (MFC) directories to the beginning of the "Include Directories" and "Library Directories" entries.
