i downloaded opentk and tried to install it w/o success. according to the errors log that i attached below, i needed to install vs 2008 first. but, if i am going to use vs 2010, why do i have to install 2008?
The more important problem is that no version of Visual * Express supports third party plugins.
You can use the Visual Studio Shell to install plugins if you're using something like a full language implementation like Amethyst, but Visual Studio Shell doesn't include any languages (C++, C#, etc), so it's mostly only useful if the plugin you're trying to use is a full language itself. I haven't used NShader, but it sounds like it might treat shader files as languages.
