I tried to build a few projects – including demo and template, the ones included with the sdk – and them plug into PN, but –findexts doesn’t seem to be working for them.
VS: 2005 Pro
1) Open demo project
2) Go to properties, C/C++ and add boost to the Additional Include Directories
3) Build solution
4) Copy demo.dll from debug or release folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Programmer’s Notepad
5) Open cmd, run pn –findexts (note that pn doesn’t open, so presumably –findexts runs)
6) Open PN
7) Go to Tools, Options, Extensions. Demo extension is not there.
Figured out part of the problem. The SDK version that’s linked from the PN website is old, so any plugins created with that will automatically be rejected. Had to get the new SDK from hg repo (hg clone https://code.google.com/p/pnotepad-plugins/). Template works now, but Demo still fails to load on
