RE: VB Plugin, Installing ...
Copy your plugin to the <Msg Plus folder>\Plugins folder and restart Messenger. Your plugin will be loaded by Plus and you're ready to test it. If you don't wan't to restart Messenger, make a program that executes
code:
Const HWND_BROADCAST As Long = &HFFFF&
PostMessage HWND_BROADCAST,  _
    RegisterWindowMessage("MessengerPlus_PluginChange"), _
    0, 0

and wait 5 seconds.

I think that the info that comes with the example plugins is very easy...

Oh sorry, I forget the reg key. What i posted is for both C++ and VB plugins. But for VB you also have to add some stuff to the registry:
In the branch HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Patchou\MsgPlus2\RegisteredPlugins you have to add a string key like "My VB plugin"="VBplugin.Class"
Read the readme that comes with the examples and you'll understand better:
quote:
When installing a Visual Basic plugin, you are required to create a
special value in the registry to let Messenger Plus! know that it
has to load your DLL. Placing it in the Plugins directory will not
be enough. Here is the value you have to create:
  Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Patchou\MsgPlus2\RegisteredPlugins
  Value Name: any name you want to identify your plugin
  Value data: VB object identifier (ProgID)
The object identifier is the name of your project, a dot and the
name of your class. For example, the identifier for the VB sample
distributed in this API package is "MPPlugin.Sample".

Uhm i know this DjMystic guy has done quite some wrong :dodgy: (at least, thats what i read here),
but he did leave some cool stuff, I didn't make any plugins yet (haven't been able to get some good ideas),
but http://shoutbox.menthix.net/showthread.php?tid=14183 seems to have some good reviews from users
according to patchou it works for C++ and VB plugins, so give it a try i'd say ;)

PS Don't blame me for bringing back DjMystics topics, i know some people got banned for doing that, but i just reffered to something usefull, and it's coincidence he made it
I am too lazy to type 'Bye', 'Greetz', or 'Best regards' everytime i post, so i just put it in my signature :refuck:

Bye, HDC
