We use multiple versions of AutoCAD in our office. How do AutoCAD versions R2012 and R2013 differentiate between plug-ins and bundles. It is my understanding that there are two (maybe three??) locations to place bundles:
Neither of these reference the AutoCAD version. So, if a user uses both versions of AutoCAD and our applications are version specific, what's to stop AutoCAD 2012 from trying to load an application/plug-in meant for AutoCAD 2013?
Solved! Go to Solution.
From what I can tell from personal experience, downloading/installing a plug-in from 2012 will not install it in 2013.
Same if I do the reverse in 2013. There is no cross-over or sharing from what I can tell.
Is it working differently your you?
Good Morning Dean,
Thanks for the reply....
To answer your question, I haven't seen anything (yet) indicating that this is going to happen. I guess I haven't done enough with 2013 to know if this is going to be a problem. I'm just concerned that since this is an "auto-feature" i.e.. you put together all your bundles and xml files, etc... and Autocad automatically loads them, that at some point one of the versions, either 2012 or 2013 is going to try and load the wrong plugin. It seems like Autodesk would have that worked out somehow and I'm just curious as to how that happens (if in fact it does). I hate surprises, ha...
The Autocad version is set inside PackageContents.xml, You need to include SeriesMin and SeriesMax under RuntimeRequirements element. You can refer here .
