I only build with the VS2008 and it works fine. If you are distributing
your binaries, you'll have to include the redistributable. And if you
are planning to build your application for all supported platforms, I'd
suggest you use the SDK build environment (it will save you a lot of
time, the Cmake approach suggested on other mail will require that you
create a Cmake module to find the OpenOffice/SDK installation).

As a general suggestion, don't start with an IDE project, simply try to
get a working Makefile with the SDK environment and make sure it builds
fine in all supported platforms. It would also be easier to provide
advice if you can upload the source code somewhere (IIUC you are simply
playing with an SDK example, so there would no problem in showing the
