    Need Help for USB plugin for Mach3

    Hi
    I need help to start with mach3. I want to create USB plugin for mach3. I have downloaded the SDK and build the code with Visual Studio 2010. But i got the following error.


    Code:
    1>c:\cnc\mach3development\sdk.2.62\machincludes\mach4view.h(18): error C3500: invalid ProgID 'ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash'
    1>c:\cnc\mach3development\sdk.2.62\machincludes\mach4view.h(18): fatal error C1103: fatal error importing progid: 'ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash'
    1>  MachDevice.cpp
    1>c:\cnc\mach3development\sdk.2.62\machincludes\mach4view.h(18): error C3500: invalid ProgID 'ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash'
    1>c:\cnc\mach3development\sdk.2.62\machincludes\mach4view.h(18): fatal error C1103: fatal error importing progid: 'ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash'

    error is pointing in Mach4view.h and line is following.
    Code:
    #import  "PROGID:ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash" no_namespace raw_interfaces_only

    So how to clear this error.
    I am compiling Blank pluigin from SDK.

    Here i ahve attached Mach4view.h file.

    There aren't many people familiar with writing Mach3 plugins.
    I believe that you need to use VS2003, so that may be part of the problem.

    Hi,
    I searched for Visual studio 2003, it is very difficult to get it now.
    and also i think it is not matter of visual studio versions.
    I think there may be mismatch i did or something else.
    Pleas help to get out of this.

    As I said, there are very few people with experience writing Mach3 plugins.

    Geez, I'm sure I have VS2003 (or at least still have the media).
    I also have VS2005 & VS2008 which I still use.
    Nowadays you need to download DDK

    Now to hunt up this Mach3 "Plugin SDK"!

    Hi,
    why? All development on Mach3 ceased six-seven years ago. Whatever bugs and shortcomings it has it will be tuck with.

    If you are going to go to all the trouble of writing a plugin then write it for Mach4. Firstly you'll be able to use a much later version of VS and
    you'll get assistance from NFS provided you sign a Non Disclosure Agreement..
