I'm having a lot of trouble getting the Novint Falcon SDK setup in a project.  I've installed the SDK, and read the PDF guide from the Novint website.  The setup instructions are for an earlier version of Visual Studio and not compatible with what I'm using (2012 Express).  I couldn't even get their samples to work because they didn't convert properly.

 

I'm not sure how to get the LIB and DLL and all the stuff associated the way that they want it to be.  I don't have it with me right now so I don't remember all the specific details, but it wanted me to set environment variables too, which I also couldn't figure out how to do in my version.  Honestly, I just never do that kind of stuff.  If anyone knows how to do this stuff, I would appreciate it.

 

Also, all the info pertains to C++, but I really want to use C#.  If I have to write a wrapper for C# using C++, that's acceptable, but I've never done that (though I do know C++), so ideally, it would be nice if anyone knows of one that already exists (and works well).  Otherwise if you could provide me with information of how to do that, it would be great.  Thanks!

Seriously, doesn't anyone use this at all?  I know it's not the most popular device in the world but I thought it had a following.  I posted the question here because the Novint site doesn't even have a forum :-/ so I don't know where else to go.  If no one here could answer the question, would anyone in the world know the answer?

 

Actually, it may not even be a Falcon-specific problem.  It seems like a lot of projects have to import stuff like that and I would think they'd need environment variables too, but I haven't been using VS2012 for very long and I typically don't use a whole lot of APIs or any kind of third-party tools/plugins, so perhaps I'm a bit naïve about it, but for some reason, I always seem to have a lot of trouble finding any accurate information about these kinds of things.
