I was quite excited to see that you could use the BBNDK from within Visual Studio...but then I got sad when I just couldn't make it work.
I have the samples building running and deploying in the Eclipse IDE so I know my compiler is installed correctly. I'm pretty sure the VS plugin did not install correctly...there was nothing in the NDKHostPath or NDKTargetPath under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Research In Motion\BlackBerryVSPlugin
so I added
respecively. This got me past the initial error, now, when I follow the instructions and set my 'Blackberry' config I get reasonable looking project properties (I had to change my Platform Toolset to 'qcc') but it basically does nothing. When I Build it says success on VS2012 and fails in VS2010...even if my one and only trivial .cpp file is rubbish. Nothing appears in the output window but I get this log file:

This may cause your project to build incorrectly. To correct this, please make sure that $(OutDir), $(TargetName) and $(TargetExt) property values match the value specified in %(Link.OutputFile). 1>Done Building Project "C:\Users\Steve\documents\visual studio 2010\Projects\BBTest\BBTest\BBTest.vcxproj" (build target(s)) -- FAILED. Build FAILED. Time Elapsed 00:00:03.82
I do get a reasonable looking makefile generated but I think the compiler (qcc.exe?) is just not running (even though I get another logfile named 'CompileRan' containing 'true'.
Are there some downloadable .vcxproj files for the samples that I can test?
Should I have a folder named $(VCTargetsPath)Platforms\BlackBerry\Platfor
How do I make qcc.exe run as the compiler?
Many thanks for any help

Well, I hope it's not too late for that, but have your tried the latest Visual Studio plugin? I spent a lot of my private time in tuning it up since I took over this project from BlackBerry in May 2014!
There is full support for VS2010, VS2012, VS2013, VS2015, native, OpenGL, Cascades, Qt4 for PlayBook, C++11 and more! Plus you can always report bugs and feature requests on the project's site on GitHub (https://github.com/phofman/vs-plugin).
You don't need to install the official Gold 3.0 version, which is already like half-year old. Instead go to Visual Studio Gallery (or `Extensions and Updates...`) and look for that: https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/2b2
