I used RobotC in a training session on a different platform. I am interested in using it with NXT robotics. Does RobotC support Vernier Technologies sensors ( Lego NXT Mindstorms does. LabVIEW does. RobotC???
Thanks for the help.

I spoke with the CEO from Vernier about including their sensor in my driver suite but he seemed less than enthoused to help me:

Frankly, I do not know if this is worth the effort for either of us.We
have been pretty disappointed in the response to the adapter. I am not
real excited about hacker types using our sensors. We really like to
sell just to schools.

...<and in another email>....

In short, if you want to add support for our sensors to ROBOTC , feel
free to. I might mention it on our web site, or maybe in a newsletter,
but I cannot put much work or expense into it. As I said in my last
email, I am not sure it is worth the effort. There is already pretty
good support in LabVIEW, MINDSTORMS, and RoboLAB.

So, as far as I'm concerned, I've written them off. I wasn't too impressed with this response.

Thanks for the repy. Verniers reply is a bit surprising. I have found them to be TREMENDOUSLY helpful with every contact ive had with them.
