Hi Alain,

Apparently it can't find the Lua plugin; did you build the plugins before trying to build TW itself?

The project is set up to link the plugins statically on Windows, which means you need to make sure to build the plugins before the main application; alternatively, you can change the configuration to link them dynamically, in which case it shouldn't matter, I think. To do that, you'd need to remove the setting of STATIC_SCRIPTING_PLUGINS from the project file.
