Hi Everyone,

We are pleased to announce that NPanday is already supporting VS 2008, please feel free to take a look and add some comments on what you think before we can put it on public.

You can checkout the source at or you can download the pre-built repository at

Some VS 2008 requirements before using NPanday

To install the plugin run: "mvn npanday.plugin:maven-vsinstaller-plugin:0.9.6-RC1:install"

There seems to be a problem when the repository is hosted on a server with a case-sensitive OS like Linux.

C:\temp>mvn npanday.plugin:maven-vsinstaller-plugin:0.9.6-RC1:install

[INFO] NPANDAY-180-020: Problem in resolving artifact: Assembly Artifact Id = NPanday.Plugin, Type = library, Local Path Check = C:\Documents and Settings\wsmoak\.m2\uac\gac_msil\NPanday.Plugin\0.9.6-RC1__NPanday.Plugin\NPanday.Plugin.dll,
Message = Unable to download the artifact from any repository

The file is actually in http://artemis:9094/archiva/repository/all/NPanday/plugin/NPanday.Plugin/0.9.6-RC1/

Note the '/all/NPanday/plugin' (lowercase) in the actual url vs '/all/NPanday/Plugin' (uppercase) that Maven is trying to download.

If I expand the repository locally on Windows and use a file:// url, it works fine because Windows isn't case sensitive.
