Building plugins for R8 under windows requires VisualC++ or ICC, which generally cost a load of money.
However, you can get a version of VisualC++ free and legally as part of the .NET SDK download from microsoft...
(This version appears to be VC7, but without the IDE, and it's the non-optimising version).
Anyway, I've managed to get this version to successfully build the Cinema4D R8 SDK plugins without any problems, and I've put the required extra files and a mini tutorial on my website: http:\\www.astrofish.com
So, anyone (on a PC) who has been put off messing around with plugins because of the cost of the compiler no longer has any excuse not to play...
