Visual studio 2012 support for C++ SDK installer

Is it piossible to add support for visual studio 2012 in the installer of the Rhino5 c++ SDK.


Hi Manuel,

You cannot use Visual C++ 2012 to build plug-ins for Rhino 5.

Does this help?

Thanks Dale.

Yes i saw that just after posting the question.

It is the proffessional version of vs 2010 that it requires right??


Yes. This from the C++ plug-in’s wiki:


Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 for Rhino 5 64-bit.
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 for Rhino 5 32-bit and Rhino 4.

The Express Editions of Microsoft Visual Studio will not work.


If I want to build for 32 bit rhino 5 I need to use MIcrosoft Visual c++ 2005 (as you stated) but where do I get the 32 bit rhino 5 SDK for Visual c++ 2005? I cannot find a download link anywhere. Have I made some mistake?


Both 64-bit and 32-bit libraries, required to build 64-bit and 32-bit Rhino C++ plug-ins, are included with the one and only Rhino 5 C++ SDK.

It was the name of the download (having 64 in the title) which confused me - but that is not too hard!

Many thanks.

Just another thought if there is only one rhino 5 sdk does that mean in order to build 32 bit rhino 5 plugins I will need to have Visual studio 2005 running on a 64 bit machine (otherwise I will not be able to download the 64 bit sdk)?

No, the Rhino SDK will install without VS2005 being installed.
