This is not the hello world example but the helix. And instead of creating your own .sln, use first the one in the plugin dir. And do start with the hello world example first.

And what's the deal with the images? Please provide .txt files next time (

Sounds like you're having a very similar issue that I just had. Try following the steps I outline in the last post here:

@KerKer: Okay, I'll repeat again: Under the maya installation dir there's the devkit\plug-ins directory. Search for the file helloCmd.sln and open it with VS, and try to build it.

@PeterRabel ( Look for my previous posts. The wizard is redundant and can be problematic. You shouldn't use it.
