I have tried to compile the example plugin driver both from the player windows installation and from the player SVN sources
In the first case, CMake (GUI windows version) fails with the following message:
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:6 (INCLUDE):

include could not find load file:


CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:8 (PLAYER_ADD_PLUGIN_DRIVER):

Unknown CMake command "PLAYER_ADD_PLUGIN_DRIVER".

In the second case (SVN sources) I manage to generate a solution and compile the .dll, but I have the following error when running player:

Warning: failed to setlocale(); config file may not be parse correctly
invoking player_driver_init()...
error   : failed to resolve player_driver_init: No se encontr≤ el proceso especi

error   : failed to initialise plugin: libexampledriver
error   : failed to parse config file D:\ER1\psg\player\examples\plugins\example
driver\example.cfg driver blocks

Concerning the errors I have when compiling Player in Windows, I have found problems in almost any step.
I have managed to build a .Net solution, but the compilation generates tons of errors, as windows knows nothing about functions like nanosleep or strcasecmp
I tried also with the MinGW files, but with no better results. I guest this last approach (or using cygwin) is the one followed by most people, isn't?
Thank you very much.

You could try the example plugin driver. I vaguely recall testing
compiling it in Windows.

What problems did you have compiling Player on Windows? If we don't
know, we can't fix them.

After (futile) struggling to compile player on windows, now I'll
try to use the new player binaries, but I'm quite confused about
what can and cannot do with this release:
Can I port a plugin driver wrote on Linux to use it on Windows
(with visual studio 2008)?  Has anyone tried this?  It will be
complicated? (I know almost nothing about CMake).
Thank you very much
