I am have installed MSVC 2008 and still cannot get the plugin working.
Here are my previous posts describing the problem and what I've done already:
Guys, I don't know what to say about all the flaming that will not make people more angry. I guess if you guys could settle this via PMs and only post dev. stuff here people won't get as aggravated and the developers might be able to get some constructive feedback. It would be a crying shame if all this work was abandoned over petty disputes.
