When I look at variables in the watch window, they are not displayed correctly.
For example, hdrName (a String) is shown as all dummy's.
How can i actually see the content of the String, so something like "abcdef".

The GEPRint to the console is correct.

I am still using vs C++ 2010 express.

You need to go to and click 'Additional Downloads' then get the 'C4D Typeview for Visual Studio 2010' archive. Install that (instructions in the zip) and you will be able to see the string content in the VS windows.

One caveat: it works fine with the full VS 2010 but whether it works with the Express version, I don't know.

I'll report back whether it works in full 2010 vs.

And it works.
Only thing is that in vs 2010 express devenv.exe is called vcexpress.exe.
For the rest it is the same.

Thanks again.
