Hi -

I'm writing a plugin with VS.NET (2003), for an application (Autodesk
Maya). My work cycle is basically:

1. write code
2. unload plugin in target application (where I do my testing)
3. compile plugin
4. load plugin in external application (bash head against table when
plugin does not work)

The external application has a command that allows an external
application to give it any command -- including unloading a plugin.
I'd like to have VS.NET run a small executable that does step 2
(before compilation) and step 3 (after compilation).

Can VS.NET run an executable pre-post compilation?

Thanks,

- Olumide
