Been using the Beta for a while, wasn't exactly overly impressed.

Mainly because

Windows - Mouse = Pain in the Rear

Still it connects directly to Windows XP, and more importantly MC05; so it is quite useful and I do like the ability we have to code with the current MSDN Beta. Still a lil peeved that no-one at Microsoft is willing to give a straight answer on how to actually integrate the Platform SDK.

Anyone here know how to with 2005?
Been trying for the past week with Visual C++, and for the life of me just can't seem to get the little blighter to work. I know it's easier using .NET, but unfortunately you can't have CLR and MSVCMTd at the same time. The library I'm trying to use has recently been converted for Multi-Threading (lol joy as it now means i can't use it). http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
