Hi. I've written a patch that fixes the plugin API to work on windows.
You can download it at
. The tracker entry has information on building the backlink import
library under mingw; it'd be nice if someone could add a comment on how
to do this under msvc.
If you missed the original emails, basically on windows you have to mark
exposed plugin functions for export using __declspec(dllexport). This
wasn't done, so plugin authors could not use the API functions if they
wanted their plugins to build on windows.
All the exposed functions were happily wrapped in
source/blender/blenpluginapi/intern/pluginapi.c, so there was no need to
mark any of blender's internal functions for export.
