It's the same as any other development - you can create a makefile to build the add-on.

Ralph,

Thanks for your reply.
I found the VCBuild.exe in the Microsoft Visual Studio folder. It does the job but bit tricky to get it working.

I don't know which version of VS you're using, but perhaps these articles will be relevant: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/f35ctcxw.aspx
