    Hi!

    I don't know if you have to install the Microsoft SDK on 2005, too. If its installed and imported in MSVC everything should work, otherwise you have to download it manually.

    bye

    Now I think the Express Edition is really the problem. Very sadly. C++ is my first try for a new hobby. I don´t know, whether its a good idea to buy it. Perhaps I should remain with COFFEE and Xpresso.

    You mean the PSDK? Unfortunately this is not part of the Express Edition, because EE is for free. I found Users with the same problem and some links for download the psdk, but the links are too old. All microsofts VisualStudio-websites are revised.

    I ask myself, which problem would be to be solved more simply: The missing "WebDeployPatch" ore the fatal error C1083 ("Cannot open include file: 'c4d.h': No such file or directory") with VC++2008EE or the fatal error LNK1104 ("cannot open file odbc32.lib") with VC++2005EE. What do you think?

    I found this Answer for my odbc32.lib-problem: "go to the project of the plugin settings... search the linker settings... and remove odbc32.lib odbccp32.lib from
    library modules"

    If its right, where I find the plugin settings and the linker settings?? Can not find something like this. What happens if I delete something?

    In VSC++2008 express needs to convert the sdk projectfile to the actual VSc++ version ... and the many errors are resulting because you have not set the include directorys ... normally webdeploypath is pointing to these.

    You have to open cinema4dsdk.vcproj in c++2008 and
    then he will convert it. Just hit ok and setup your Includepaths.

    ... right click on cinema4dsdk in the Project explorer
    and choose Properties ... then choose c/c++ and there you can add additional include directories.

    These you have to include:

    Path to your c4d directory...\resources\_api
    Path to your c4d directory...resources\_api\c4d_preview
    Path to your c4d directory...resources\_api\c4d_customgui
    Path to your c4d directory...resources\_api\c4d_libs
    Path to your c4d directory...resources\_api\c4d_gv
    Path to your c4d directory...resources\modules\Modeling\res\description
    Path to your c4d directory...resources\res\description
    Path to your c4d directory...resources\modules\objects\res\description
    Path to your c4d directory...resources\_api_maxon\source

    I hope this is helping you to setup VSC++2008.

    If anyone knows how to setup the webdeploypath,
    i would be thankful.

    cheers,
    Christian

    Originally Microsoft droped web deployment for VS2008. It seems it found its way back into VS2008 again but you have to install it manually. Check this link and do a google about htis topic.

    vs2008 web deployment rtw

    I have not tested this myself yet.

    @Matthias

    I just found useless information about webdeploymentpath in google.

    Hi,

    I am completly new to C4D. I am just a c++ programmer and I have to make plugin for camera in C4d. I downloaded the SDK and tried it with VC++2008 and had the same problem "Cannot open include file: 'c4d.h': No such file or directory".

    I setup a new environment variable $webdeploypath and pointed it to "C:\maxon\resource" and it worked. 0 error, 0 warning.
    But I dont know what to do next. How do I run it? Can someone point me to where do I start to learn creating a plugin.

    Thanks.

    I would need a bit more info to help you. What kind of plugin do you want to create? Check the SDK docu for the different types of plugins. Also I would recommend to learn the basics of Cinema 4D.

    cheers,
    Matthias

    I need a plugin that will allow to me to do camera rotation using some XYZ data and set "field view" . Which example plugin will help me to do this? Is there a simple tutorial that will explain me the basics of Cinema 4D?

    Thank you for your help.

    You really should start a new inquiry in a new post but... :)

    If the XYZ data is in a strict Euler format, you can build the matrix for the camera using the MatrixRotX/Y/Z() methods and set to the camera's global or local matrix (dependent upon parenting). Remember to multiply the rotations in right to left order for the proper sequence (XYZ for instance) :

    Matrix rmat = MatrixRotZ() * MatrixRotY() * MatrixRotX();

    The camera values can be found in the Resource:res:description:Ocamera.res file.
