As I understood it hcustom is pretty much deprecated at this point.

There are a bunch of makefiles under $HFS/toolkit/makefiles that you
might look at as a starting point instead.

> I am trying to compile HDK Samples on Windows Xp, with Visual Studio 2008.
> What I am doing is like this.
> 1 . Open Houdini Shell From Houdini.
> 2. E: (Where my sample files are)
> 3. hcustom SOP_Star.C
>     A scroll of compilation process is given and at the end I get error :
>     cannot open file 'kernel32.lib'
> So I searched kernel32.lib allover windows and found it at 3 places, 2 folders were 64 bit  versions , and the 1 which i chose was "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Lib"
> and at shell I entered,
> 4. hcustom -L "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Lib" SOP_Star.C
> This command compiles smoothly and gives the output
> -out:C:/DOCUME~1/Admin/houdini9.5/dso/SOP_Star.dll
> Creating library SOP_Star.lib and object SOP_Star.exp
> It created Sop_Star.dll file but when I start Houdini, Error is displayed like,
> Couldn't Load SOP_Star.dll
> This is probably because this file was intended for use with a different version of Houdini.
> Is it beacuse I am using VS 2008 ??? Do I have to use VS2005. Can't I just choose which compiler to use?? How ???
> Is there any other method for compilation??
