after i upgraded my R10.1 to R10.5, I have a problem: I can't compile my sources anymore.
1. When I open my .vcproj VisualStudio2003 gives me an error message, telling me that the api_v8 project does not exist. Right, in 10.1 it was right there, but in 10.5 it is not.
2. When I try to open the .vcproj with all the example plugins that came with R10.5, VisualStudio2003 tells me the project file would be in a wrong version. Do I really have to upgrade to VisualStudio2005 just to compile my plugin in R10.5 ? That would be stupid
So I thought it would be best to use a separate (non-upgraded) installation of R10.1 to develop my plugin there. But how should I debug if something bad happens in 10.5 ?
+ + +
Is there a standard way to compile my plugins in R10.5?
Would it be a good idea to compile them in 10.5, anyway? Will they still run in R10.1?
Thanks in advance for any help and tips!
Best regards & greetings,
P.S.: One more thing. In a moment of bright thought I made a backup of my whole cinema4dsdk folder before I started the 10.5 installer.
Good idea, because after running the installer, my old sources were all deleted. It would be nice if the installer would ask me if (and where) it should backup the existing cinema4dsdk folder.
