Running the Example

To run the example

Building the C++ Example

Softimage SDK includes a compiled version of the plug-in. If you want to modify the code, you can rebuild the example by following these instructions.

To build the example on Windows

  1. Open an Softimage command prompt, and type devenv to start Visual Studio .NET.

    Starting Visual Studio .NET from an Softimage command prompt ensures that environment variables such as XSISDK_ROOT are set (otherwise you'll get build and link errors).

    Tip To load the CustomUITest project from the command line, type:

    devenv CustomUITest.vcproj
  2. In Visual Studio .NET, open the project file .vcproj.
  3. Select a configuration (Win32 Release or Win32 Debug) and build the DLL.

To build the example on Linux

This example uses the Windows API and is not available on Linux.
