FARR v2 plugin - Using free version of MS Visual Studio?
« on: February 16, 2008, 10:38:42 AM »
I want to create a FARR plugin. I haven't decided what language to use but I don't want to spend any money on VS. The issue is that VS C++ 2008 Express edition does not include MFC. Is MFC required? If so could someone (vitalyb/mouser) send a compiled dll of vitalyb's plugin wrapper?

I suggest to you to use the Javascript SDK. C# SDK might work but it also recompiles the wrapper when you build your plugin so you must have MFC libraries in your C++ compiler.

if you want to use C++ (not C#) then you do not need MFC, and can use the sample plugin skeleton i provide in C++.
