I did asked a lot of questions lately on mac versus pc.

Another lesson I learned today and I would to share is that a plugin compiled with debug on a windows 8.1 will not work (show up) on a windows 10 pc.
When you think about, it makes sense, but I had to spend some brain cells before I could solve it.

Hopefully, somebody else learns from my mistakes.

That makes me wonder now if the plugins on my website work with Win8.1 and/or Win 10?
The .cdls for them are all compiled in Debug mode. Because they are just learning examples, and I'm too darn lazy to set up my compiler settings for the Release versions. :blush:

Now you've got me wondering if they even run on these new Windows versions?

I tried DrawText Tag_R13 and nothing shows up in cinema 4d.
Also no message in the console.

I see that you added a warning on your website.
I guess that is enough.
