Hi i'm just learning to do some windows programming and i need to figure out how to use the windows iTunes development kit. I want to write some plug-ins to help manage my music and to brush up on my C++/VB/Java. The only coding i've ever done was command line and never did any COM stuff. I'm using VisualStudio.NET, and i added the iTunes .h and .c file, and add the code as given by apple into my main .cpp file, but i get errors when i try to compile. Do i have to compile the iTunes files as a library and then include them? Also i'm trying to learn VisualBasic by looking at some code, and it seems extremely easy but i have no idea how to include the iTunes library. THis should be an easy answer for someone.. I'm no novice at C++ but i find windows GUI programming unneccessarily complex.
