I wrote a plugin. So far everything is ok, but when it is executed I got the message: "Unable to open file: */*/*.res".
The shown file in fact doesn't exist. I know from the examples, that for every plugin there is such a (compiled) file.
My questions now are: What does this file do and how do I create it?

res files are resource files (just normal text files with the file ending .res) for the attributes manager interface of your plugin. Look into any plugins folders description subfolder and you will find the according res file.
Also see "Description" in the SDK documentation for more information.

Hey, you're right, they are normal text files. I thougth they are not, because my text editor just showed me some Hex-Values.
Thanks a lot!
