Hi All
Should the above be able to compile the example api's? I get the following when I compile the Notification Manager;
1>.\Src\Tool_Observer.cpp(44) : error C2220: warning treated as error - no 'object' file generated
1>.\Src\Tool_Observer.cpp(44) : warning C4996: 'sprintf' was declared deprecated
1> C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\include\stdio.h(345) : see declaration of 'sprintf'
1> Message: 'This function or variable may be unsafe. Consider using sprintf_s instead. To disable deprecation, use _CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE. See online help for details.'
1>Selection_Observer.cpp
1>.\Src\Selection_Observer.cpp(42) : error C2220: warning treated as error - no 'object' file generated
1>.\Src\Selection_Observer.cpp(42) : warning C4996: 'sprintf' was declared deprecated
1> C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\include\stdio.h(345) : see declaration of 'sprintf'
1> Message: 'This function or variable may be unsafe. Consider using sprintf_s instead. To disable deprecation, use _CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE. See online help for details.'
ETC ETC

I am a newbie to C++ but have a lot of GDL/RPL/Javascript/VBScript blah blah experience Shouldnt the examples at least compile or is there incompatibility between VC++?
Thanks for any help

The examples were created for use with VS 2003. Use of any other versions of Visual C++ / Visual Studio or other software (Windows; Code Warrier for PPC / X-Code for Intel on OS X) requires twiddling, if possible at all. Please read similar threads in this forum.

There are a lot of project settings that are incorporated into the visual studio project file and which one might not immediately guess without experience, so using 2003 is definitely recommended as the painless method of getting going with the API SDK.

Because of your other post, please do note that the API SDK is not the same as the GDL SDK. One creates general add-ons for ArchiCAD itself. The other creates add-ons for GDL, providing new REQUEST functionality.

Thanks for your help Karl. I realise that the mvo info has been implemented for newer versions but it seems the usual rules of inverse simplicity apply! MVO info access is SO essential
All the best

FWIW, you can disable the DEPRECATED warnings in VC 2005 by defining "_CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE".

But that only applies to the code you compile yourself.

is it possible to use Visual Studio 2005?

I got the following error when I try to convert a VS 2003 project to VS 2005:

Error 2 error PRJ0019: A tool returned an error code from "Compiling the RC2 file..."

Does anyone know where you can get a some free download of VS2003 or similar that will build the API examples- even a limited version- just to get started with?

The Express versions are free and include the IDE.

There is/was the VS2003 toolkit at
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/visualc/aa336490.aspx
which is only the compiler.

You probably need to add the Microsoft Win32 SDK.

Not sure if this could work for ArchiCAD development.

Anyways, it is not available anymore.
