hey guys, i'm just curious; by skimming this section i found a lot of us asking how to use the SDK with visual studio express.
By any chance will someone make a package usuable for Express or another open-source IDE or i just dream in color. (I know express isnt open-source at all)
But since construct is open-source, it would follow the line to encourage the use of open-source software no?

what do you think.

You can't use express to make anything with Construct. Some alternative would be nice, but anyone looking to make plugins for Construct has to use the professional version of VC++.

It's probably possible to fiddle with the SDK and make it work on Express - I'm not sure if the SDK will be able to port to non-Microsoft compilers, though. I haven't tried. If other compilers implement member-function pointers differently, you're pretty much out of luck, because the SDK depends on that.

I can't see why the SDK wouldn't work with express, is there any specific errors which prevent it working? (You'd have to use the WinAPI one, not the MFC one).
