    to create plugin using CLI/C


      Hi all


      I had tested the sample-code for Disolve ...


      I placed the dll file "disolve.8bf" in location as C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop CS6\plug-ins\Disolve and it's installed and running successfully ...


      I need to create a plugin for Photoshop CS6. I had created the UI using Window Form Application template


      Now I had customized the extension as:

      As In Property Page -

      • Configuration properties -> general -> Target Extension as .8bf
      • Configuration properties -> general -> Configuration Type as .dll


      I placed the dll file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop CS6\plug-ins\Disolve.


      Any suggestion will be appreciated, Please suggest me if any tips are there, because reworking these all will take a lot of time ...

          I haven't tried Window Form Application but there is a MFC example that might help you. My guess is that you don't have the PiPL resource in your plugin. In the Dissolve example, notice there is a Dissolve.r file and that file has a custom build step that produces a resource that Photoshop needs to load your plugin. I would review that and make sure your WFA has the same resource as the Dissolve Win32 example.
