MS is giving away for free it's optimizing C++ compiler:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/visualc/vctoolkit2003/

It's a command line tool, but could anybody comment if this works with the Cinema SDK?

How to construct correct "make" files for that compiler? Is there anything special reason *not* to use it?

Thanks for any insight!

Hi Kabe,
Yes it works!
I have now compiled and linked "cinema4dsdk" and it run.
The only problem is, you will need "_api_v8_rel.lib" (C4D SDK Library) to link it.
To create this library you will need lib.exe
If you have "_api_v8_rel.lib" you can create compile.bat to compile all *cpp files and with linking.bat you can link all objects together to YouPlugin.cdl
If you want I can share my compile.bat and linking.bat files.
One can create simple Program that will make it a bit easier. 🙂
But compile.bat and linking.bat can make it too.

Cooool!

I guess that I'm not the only one here that would indeed be interested in the compile.bat and linking.bat files 🙂

And that little proggie you talked about would certainly open the door to C++ plugins for a couple of people. If I've a look at the *.bat files maybe I just write that myself in RB. My dream would be a kind of "inbox" at my Windows machine just waiting for the plugin code.

Currently I'm using Visual Studio C .net, which doesn't have an optimizing compiler and has in my view it's very own idea of workflow and interface, to put it friendly...

Thanks a million!

Now you can download it on my site.

If you have Visual Studio C++ .net without optimization you must have windows.h and lib.exe
You can try to use Toolkit compliler instead of Visual Studio C .net compiler.
What is RB?

Thanks for the download! Probably saved a tremendous amount of time for me...

RB = Realbasic, an object oriented, cross-platform (Mac, Win, Linux) RAD tool. Very fast development tool for this kind of apps.
