Just noticed you have to burn it to dvd... kinda sucks.

So anyone want to confirm that it has everything, and works for making plugs?

You can extract the files using winrar which handles .iso as regular archives

Use PowerISO or similar to setup a virtual drive. Should work fine like that too.

You could also try demon tools for turning an image in to a virtual DVD.

I have just downloaded vs 2008 c++ express edition and was able to compile the Template.csx plugin
It works... :-D

Here are my steps
Install visual studio
Install DDK - I have instaled this to c:\WinDDK
download plugin sdk

Open the visual studio vc9 solution for the tempate plugin

Now in the Project -> Template SDK properties
set Configuration: to All Configurations

add "C:\WinDDK\7600.16385.0\inc\atl71"
and "C:\WinDDK\7600.16385.0\inc\mfc42" to the c++ -> general -> additional include directories
The order of the above is important... atl71 needs to be first

add "C:\WinDDK\7600.16385.0\inc\mfc42" to the resource->general-> additional include directories
Configuration - general -Use of MFC: use MFC in a shared dll
"C:\WinDDK\7600.16385.0\lib\ATL\i386" to the linker->general->additional link libraries

batch build: release win32 and runtime win32
goto ../../IDE and copy the plugins folder to your construct plugins and the Template plugin is ready for a test run. :-D

I believe it's Daemon Tools
I think Demon Tools is used for turning an image into a centerpiece for a satanic ritual

Daemon tools is nice... but there are so many crapware links on their page.

winrar is able to extract iso files to folders as if they were zip archives

www.rarlab.com - winrar
The trial works forever - and if you really like it you have the freedom to buy it

Nice :D We'll still get rid of MFC/ATL from the SDK in Construct 2, so you won't need the DDK download, but it's cool this works now!

Can anyone post the required files for me? I can't possibly download 600mb on 256kb/s.

Regards,
