Hey,

Is somebody designing plugins for the AVRStudio?

The main reason that I am asking this, is because I want to start using this SDK from Atmel ( I already signed the agreement) but I found that they are using VC++6 and I only have VB2005 /VC++2005 Express editions.. so I am not able to mix .NET and MFC.

Is atmel porting its SDK to pure .NET?

I am using VS2005 to create the plug-ins. Once you use the Wizard (that comes with the SDK) simply open the project with VC++Express. It should convert the project to the new format (I am using VS2005 Professional so I may be wrong about this). It will not include CLR support in the project so there should be no mixing of .Net and MFC.

I have been using more ATL than MFC in the projects, just cleaner for COM IMHO. I have also downloaded and installed Borland's Turbo C++ but have not tried working on the plug-ins (or even COM projects) with it yet. It *may* be a good alternative though.

That's my problem, in VS2005Ex you are no able to mix MFC and .NET. Any way, thank you for your feedback!

Will Express allow you to turn off the CLR support at the project level?

Project --> Properties (DLG) Configuration Properties --> General --> (on right) Common Language Runtime Support : No Common Runtime Language Support.

I guess you have Chicken and the Egg scenario though. VS2K5Ex will not load the project, I assume, and therefore you cannot change the property. Maybe create a new, empty project and add the source files to it after changing that property?
