Hi StormBr,First of all you'll need FSUIPC and FSUIPC SDK available at:[http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.html]This allows you to read/write data from/to FS. The SDK contains simple hello world type examples in several programing languages, and great documentation. However i have a problem already posted here at the forum but still unanswered. With the sdk i only been able to create external aplications to interface with FS. What i want, and probably you also, is the possibility to call the developed application for the FS's menu bar (like FSNavigator, for example). For that i know we have to make an FS dll and place it on the FS2002/modules folder.The question is how ....Hope this helps you to get into it.Regards,Paulo Correia

You have to use proper ImportTable and Linkage structures to let FS recognize a module dll. The FSSound source sample part of sd2gau12.zip shows a code example. Unfortunately I can't recall what's necessary to load it also to the menu bar.Arne Bartels

Arne,Thanks for the info ... ;) I've downloaded it and took a quick look to the source code. I'll try to use it and then let you know. About the menu let's see if someone can help!Best regards,Paulo Correia

although I've not tried it yet, maybe a standard windows resource menu in the DLL might show it up by default?
