    Hi folks!

    I have a problem, maybe i´m to stupid but i cant solve it!

    i would add some plugins for Metaseq, but all these plugins i must self create!

    http://metaseq.net/en/developer.html

    they are available in the SDK version (i need for Metaseq v.3) of Metaseq and i should use Visual Studio 2008 to convert a *.cpp file (or something from there) into a *.dll file!
    I really dont understand how i can convert it into a *.dll!!! and i follow the instructions, but somewhere i did a fault!

    Maybe someone has the knowledge to make it or had already convert the files into a *.dll amd can send me these! Please!

    Thanks for help
    Marko

    The SDK does not contain plugins that you can add to Metasequoia (except maybe some examples), it is the tool that you use to create plugins of your own. It is used in conjunction with Visual Studio 2008. In Visual Studio you start a new "DLL" project, add the Metasequoia controls or whatever, and write your programs using the defined API (Application Programming Interface).

    Does that help?
