Plugin compiles fine.  When I run in Cinema4D and select my plugin it tells me that Cinema4D cannot find the object.res in the Cinema4D/resource/res/description/ folder.  This seems wrong.  Why would it be looking there instead of in my plugin folder?  Is this something obvious?

Sorry, new to this.

Without code it's impossible to say, but yes, you're doing something wrong. You might want to take a look at my site at http://www.microbion.co.uk/graphics/c4d/create_plugins1.htm where I have some worked examples of simple plugins. You should find what you need to get a resource loaded in one of those.

Sorry, this seems really strange.  It was working fine, then I tried to Archive to create a Release build and then it went wonky.  I tried doing debug builds again and it is still wrong.  It is a one plugin project.  Are their capitalization restrictions in resources?  Doesn't explain the sudden issue but I am at a loss currently.

In my rush to clean things up I remove the initialization of the resources in the PluginMessage function.
