I am playing around with Lua lanuage and saw that someone created a LUA.NET (http://bandodalua.lua.inf.puc-rio.br/luanet/), when I download what they have it only appears to be a stand alone compiler, how do I get Visual Studio to support making new LUA projects?

LuaInterface for Lua.NET is only a wrapper to call lua code and the other way around from any .NET language (same way as it works with c++ code). The real thing (IMO, I am really waiting for it ^^): Lua2IL isn't released yet. This would enable you to use Lua as a .NET language and not only write code directly in VS, but also call it from any other .NET language natively.

If you just want to code/display some lua in VS simply use LuaLite Syntax Highlighting: http://www.sjbrown.co.uk/lualite.html

A nice standalone compiler/interpreter for Lua is QDE: http://www.quotixsoftware.com/qde_index.htm
