    Hi

    I want to start learning to program a plugin in C++ (I learned C++ in school :)

    But my first problem is that I get an error when I want to compile the skd in Visual Studio Express 2005. It sais:

    2>LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file '..\..\resource\_api_lib\_api_win32_release.lib'

    I also get an error that the builder can't find the 'windows.h' file, but I already found another thread for that in this forum.

    But what about the first error? It compiles without error in XCode but I HATE this tool, it's a bit too complicated for my taste. It spreads out the files all over the disk while building.

    Hope somebody can explain me why I get this error. Thanks in advance.

    Steve

    You need to install the MS Platform SDK if you are using VS 2005 Express. You should find the download on the VS Express website.

    cheers,
