Is it somehow possible to restore the "cinema4dsdk" folder with its samples?
I deleted it accidentally while I cleaned up some unused plugins last time. I thought it would be a old version and should be downloaded newly anyway. Now I recognized that this folder seams not to be downloadable from the official website. Is there any way to restore this files without reinstalling the whole software? Also because my Internet connection is incredible slow, it would take forever.

I use the student version of cinema 4d. Although I don't think this is important for plugin development.

By the way, will the cinema 4d 15 plugin API work with Visual Studio 2010 or 2013? I have both installed but not that one from 2012. I noticed that in the files which I have in "resource\_api_lib" the toolset is set to v110 which means 2012?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

I'm afraid that you may need to re-install the application. Another way to get the current SDK would be to download the demo versions, but the current demo is 3 GB big.

The R15 SDK works with VS 2013 as the v110 toolset is included in VS 2013.

best wishes,

You can get the v110 compiler installed into 2010 afaik but assuming the r15 sdk sln files etc are setup for 2013..

[edit]  Also, as far as i can see the SDK is only 2/3 megabytes, would it be infringing licences if somebody zipped it up and uploaded it somewhere?
