 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello,

So i have gotten a little bit sick of the multiple windows for having multiple files with the arduino IDE so I was looking to move my arduino programming to Visual C++ as I have worked with this before.  I found a pluggin that is meant to solve all of the normal definition problems associated and also allow uploading (as far as I can tell).

However, I can't seem to get it to work correctly.

Current IDE: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express
Plugin: version 27 provided here: http://visualmicro.codeplex.com/releases/view/77923

I originally found reference to the plugin here: http://arduino.cc/playground/Code/VisualMicro

I have downloaded the file and installed it, however when i follow the instructions on the above link and try to create a new project I cannot find the described arduino template.

I have read this: http://visualmicro.codeplex.com/documentation but it doens't offer much help and the link titled "new users please read" doesn't appear to be up.  as far as i can tell the site visualmicro.com doesn't appear to be up.

Any suggestions?

Cheers,
David
