Hiyas all. Recently ive been wanting to play with the SDK of a program called the RPG Toolkit. Too see what I can do with it. But it seams it was created in VS 6.0 and I have 2005(8.0). So when I try to compile it I get plenty of warrnings and a error. Could anyone please help me get rid of them so it will work properly in 2005? Here is the location of the Plugin SDK as its called. Toolkit Plugin Also here are the warrnings and errors.
c:\documents and settings\jesse\desktop\rpgcode\pluginman\libraries\sdk\tkpluginbase.cpp(90) : warning C4018: '>' : signed/unsigned mismatch

Types pointed to are unrelated; conversion requires reinterpret_cast, C-style cast or function-style cast


And a bit of code that seams to causing the error.
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////
//
// Function: CharToBSTR
//
// Parameters: x- a char* string
//
// Action: converts a ascii string to a BSTR string
//
// Returns: BSTR- the converted string.
//
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////
BSTR CharToBSTR(char* x)
{
int len = strlen(x);
unsigned short* bstrRet = new unsigned short[len+1];
for (int i=0; i<len; i++)
{
char part = x;
bstrRet = part;
bstrRet[i+1] = '\0';
}
if ( len == 0 )
{
bstrRet[0] = 0;
}
return bstrRet;
}

You should be able to make the compiler ignore the warnings like this:

Project -> <myprog> Properties -> Configuration properties -> C/C++ -> Command line -> Additional options.

/D _CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE

There is a couple of things you can try:
First of all go to
Project -> <myprog> properties -> Configuration properties -> General.
And set Character set = Not Set

Thanks for the help so far. The /D _CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE sollution worked. But I still get a error and one warrning. Though the warning doesn't seam to be horrible.

Okeverything compiles fine now. But the dll file it creates doesn't show any visible output once I add a few calls too CBDebugMessage(). I still get warrnings so something tells me that might be the problem. Once there gone things might work right.

I still have the Signed/Unsigned mismatch one plus these new ones.

tkpluglocalfns.cpp(174) : warning C4996: 'itoa' was declared deprecatedstdlib.h(820) : see declaration of 'itoa'Message: 'The POSIX name for this item is deprecated. Instead, use the ISO C++ conformant name: _itoa. See online help for details.'.\tkplugin.def(4) : warning LNK4017: DESCRIPTION statement not supported for the target platform; ignoredtkplugin.exp : warning LNK4070: /OUT:tk3fight.dll directive in .EXP differs from output filename '.\Debug/tkplugin.dll'; ignoring directive

What should I do to fix these? And will it even fix the problem of the plugin not seamingly working right in rpg toolkit?

Ello? Anyone?
