First I want to say that I love Arduino and I think its IDE offers a great starting point for beginners.

Recently, I tried to make the leap to AVR Studio. It has been a long time since I did full C development so it took awhile to get back in the swing of things. I downloaded the beta of AVR Studio 5 and realized its in Visual Studio Isolated Shell. Since I work at a place that writes VS extensions everyday I through together a quick proof of concept of how we could put Arduino menus into Visual Studio.

I'm not suggesting we replace the IDE, but was interested to see what people think of building a Avr studio extension that runs off a local copy of the arduino software. That way you could develop with as many bits of arduino as you desired!

What Visual Studio 2010 is needed? I have VS2010 C++ Express, and I have no choices like "Visual Studio Package" available. I can't afford Visual Studio Pro.

it would be just incredibly awesome if i could use VS2010 instead of the arduino IDE, but still be able to upload through the menu.

as a professional software developer who is used to working in VS2010, the arduino IDE feels like something made for kids, imho.

Did you install the Visual Studio SDK? http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=47305cf4-2bea-43c0-91cd-1b853602dcc5&displaylang=en


I'm also interested to see if express can create stuff for the SDK.


I do have SDK 7.1 installed, but I can't find actual Visual Studio icon, or I just don't know to look for. Unfamiliar environment for me.

Cheers,
