I wish I could give a score of minus 10. I’ve been coding for 25 years. Firstly I have never – ever seen such an over engineered excuse for an ADK. All collada needs to do is read XML which is a TEXT FORMAT for goodness sake. Secondly NONE of the visual studio 9 or 10 projects build. You get hundreds of errors plus warnings that the compiler is the wrong version. For goodness sake, they are specifically organised into visual studio 9 and 10 folders!!! How much clearer can it be. You load the visual studio 9 solution with visual studio 9 and it says “wrong compiler” or some similar insane message and greets you with 853 compile messages, mostly to do with completely unnecessary macros which don’t evaluate properly. Why not simplify all this nonsense (by a factor of 1000) and write a self contained single source file solution to just read the text source and produce some output. Utterly hopeless. At the very least, make sure your code compiles and links before you release. Finally, to add insult to my efforts, I found a much older version of collada-dom (about 3 years old) and found the very same visual studio 9 solution in that version. I loaded it and it built perfectly. See you can do it, you have apparently just forgotten how.
