Also, not sure what your development environment and toolchain are,
but I'm finding MinGW to have some advantages over Cygwin for building
stuff using *nix tools (makefiles etc) on windows - especially using
Eclipse as an IDE.

Cheers

>> Hello Everybody...
>>
>> 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??
