    Question which compiler Oo ?

    I want to creat my own plugin, but one problem is i dont know which compier.
    I tested it with

    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <string.h>
    #include <assert.h>
    #include <ts3\public_errors.h>
    #include <ts3\public_errors_rare.h>
    #include <ts3\public_definitions.h>
    #include <ts3\public_rare_definitions.h>
    #include <ts3\ts3_functions.h>
    #include "plugin.h"
    static struct TS3Functions ts3Functions;
    #define strcpy(dest, destSize, src) { strncpy(dest, src, destSize-1); (dest)[destSize-1] = '\0'; }
    #define PLUGIN_API_VERSION 19
    #define PATH_BUFSIZE 512
    #define COMMAND_BUFSIZE 128
    #define INFODATA_BUFSIZE 128
    #define SERVERINFO_BUFSIZE 256
    #define RETURNCODE_BUFSIZE 128
    static char* pluginID = NULL;

    /* Unique name identifying this plugin */
    const char* ts3plugin_name() {

    /* Plugin version */
    const char* ts3plugin_version() {
        return "1.2";
    /* Plugin API version. Must be the same as the clients API major version, else the plugin fails to load. */
    int ts3plugin_apiVersion() {

    	char pluginPath[PATH_BUFSIZE];
        /* Your plugin init code here */
        printf("PLUGIN: init\n");
        /* Example on how to query application, resources and configuration paths from client */
        /* Note: Console client returns empty string for app and resources path */
        ts3Functions.getAppPath(appPath, PATH_BUFSIZE);

     * Note the passed pluginID parameter is no longer valid after calling this function, so you must copy it and store it in the plugin.

    const char* ts3plugin_commandKeyword() {
    	return "test";
    but If I compil it with Code::Blocks 12.11 Compiler: GNU GCC Compiler,
    I get this file.

    but in teamspeak 3 -> plugins
    I says "Failed to open plugin."

    I use win 7 64 bit and have no Idea where is my misake ^^

    This is just guessing but Code::Blocks will most likely create a 32bit dll by default, which cannot be loaded by the 64bit TS3 client. You have to either tell your compiler to create a 64bit dll (I don't use Code::Blocks, so I can't tell you how) or use the 32bit TS3 client.

    On Windows, the TeamSpeak client is compiled with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. Loading plugins compiled with gcc will be a challenge on Windows. So far I only did the reverse, loading a MSVC DLL from Mingw exe, and that was quite some fiddling. But a quick google search shows some articles (e.g. here) on loading Mingw DLLs from a MSVC exe, so you may give it a try.

    Instead I would suggest to install Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Express, which is a free download.
