thanks for your help. it works great on 2012.
where should i put addin file into for inventor 2010? on the readme, i dont see any instruction for inventor 2010
All programs for Wkndows needed to be registered for windows until recently.
When you compiled the old style DLL addin, or when the DLL was regestered with windows when you ran a program install package. You could also manually register a program with RegSvr32.exe,.
Autodesk came up with the Registration Free system where you do not need to jump through those hoops.
You simply put the compiled DLL in the Inventor Bin folder and the Addin in the Addin folder.
If 2010 still uses the old registration method then you do not manually move any files at all.
On the machine you compiled the DLL on you should be able to see it inside Inventor under the addins menu.
The same if you created an install package and installed the DLL to another PC.
this is where you can find addins
trust this helps
thanks for the clarification.
In inventor 2010, I have to use Registration then. there will be a little more work but can be done.
