I've started to use Visual C++ 2010 Express to write Arduino code, thanks to the excellent help at: http://arduino.cc/playground/Code/VisualStudio
(you may notice I've made some additions to make the page more applicable to Visual C++ 2010 Express). But it's a bit brutal to get your projects up and running in VS Express because you can't use Visual Micro - the Express versions of Visual Studio don't support add-ins.
Which made me think "if only there was a little app that did this for you" - changed the VS Express settings and the registry, and created a solution file and a project file with all the necessary machinery in place so that they would compile in VS Express without any further changes. You drag your .ino file onto the app, it does its thing, and you're ready to go. Once you've got your project set up properly to start with, it's perfectly possible to program in VS Express without an add-in.
So, I'm writing just such an app. Now my questions:
1. Are there any English speakers out there who would find this useful? If so, would you be interested in seeing a beta version, and reporting any bugs you find?
2. Are there any speakers of other languages out there who would find this useful? If so, would you be interested in helping to with translations / localization?
Of course, if you speak English and another language, you could be in both groups!
Let me know either by replying here, or sending me a private message.
