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.

P.S. Do not run VB.NET and Inventor at the same time when testing out your addin.  Close the one your not curently using.
