So I've been just starting my adventures into Toolkit for Creo 2.0 using Visual Studio 2010, and I was wondering, is there any benefit to creating your DLL using the makefile method versus Visual Studio's MFC DLL method? I found this: http://usecreo.com/configure-vs2010-creo2-toolkit-application.html on the web, and it seems to be a pretty straight forward process...

Just to close this topic, ends up that this is a valid procedure. The only other major thing that I've done in addition to his procedure in that link is add support for debugging by adding xtop to my debugging commands. To do this,
inside of your solution properties, go to "Configuration Properties -> Debugging" and add the path to your xtop.exe function (usually inside of %PROE_INSTALL_PATH%\[machine_type]\obj\xtop.exe)
set Attach = "Yes"
set Debugger Type = "Native Only"
Maybe there is some additional settings that I haven't found yet, but I'll be sure to post them here if I do find anything.
