Undocumented Visual C++

, 17 Sep 2000
Spelunking in the Badlands of MSDEV
These projects have only been tested tested under Visual C++ 6.0, SP4,
running on Windows 2000.  Please let me know if you encounter problems
on other platforms.  I suspect that some of the ideas from the article 
are not accurate when applied to VC 5.0.

The pre-built .dll and .awx file are "pseudo debug" builds.  I have 
copied them to the root of the distribution directory for your 
convienience.  They MUST be manually installed by YOU.

The sample projects are:

--- ExtensionAddin ---

A Visual C++ Application Wizard that generates
a "MFC extension DLL addin".  To use, copy the .awx file to your
Wizard directory, typically \msdev root\Common\MSDev98\Template.

--- OpenVC ---

An example addin written using the above wizard.  It 
shows how to gain access to the internal MSDEV MFC objects.  

To install and use, browse for the OpenVC.DLL file from the 
Tools/Customize dialog's "Addins and Macro Files" page.  Once selected, 
Visual C++ will load the addin and create its toolbar.
