It is now possible to make extensions for construct with "Visual C++ Express." The main roadblock was that vc express does not come with the ATL files that are required by the construct SDK. That's no longer a problem since Microsoft included ATL 7.1 with their Windows driver kit completely free.

EDIT: I can also build the mfc template from the SDK

maybe this should be moved or duplicated to the Construct Discussion forum as well
I think there's alot of people who wanted this, but probably don't check construct engineering much since they couldn't really contribute much here without a nonexpress vc

Thanks for the find, this should be useful for those wanting to use the SDK with Express editions!

Are you sure there's no separate ATL download or do you really need the whole WDK?

[size=50:3dmyeh4z]Anyone who downloads it, any chance you could PM me only the necessary files? Probably isn't completely within the Micro$oft ula, but the hell if I'm downloading over half a gig that mostly consists of stuff I don't need on this connection.[/size:3dmyeh4z]

Don't forget in some countries if you're in school/college/university you can get VS2008 Pro for free via http://www.dreamspark.com!

Yeah, I looked into it, it'd be too much hassle especially considering that the express edition is more than sufficient except for that missing ATL :evil:
