Hi Simon,

I am not sure, but i think VS2008 uses VC9 and VS2005 uses VC8 and that is the reason
 of incompatibility. Am i Right??
Can I have VS2008 and still use VC8 of that to compile ??

I still use hcustom, it works fine on windows.
Just make sure you compile for the VC8 build of houdini using MSVC 2005

Not sure about using MSVC 2008 though.

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.

Cheers
