Here is what I can get from the thread about vs2008 problems he was having:

I built vtk-5.2.1 and c++
 examples in VS2008 without any errors. My TCL examples run fine.
However, when I ran Arrays.exe or Cube.exe, I didn't see anything
rendered on the screen, and no error messages either. I tried both
BUILD_SHARED_LIBS=OFF and ON, and I also tried both Debug and Release
builds. It didn't make any difference. I am completely lost. Someone
please help me out. Thank you.
