i'm trying to move my C++ AddIn from Inventor 2010 to 2013.
I've read about the new type of registry free Addin.
I've downloaded the updated Developer Tools and created a new blank project with the wizard.
This works fine.
But by comparing the new projects structure with my current one in 2010 i see lots of differences.
Searching through the C++-Samples in the SDK directory i found none of them updated to the new version of Visual Studio and to registry free.
So i would kindly ask for a sample project (Visual Studio 2010, C++, registry free)
which will show a suitable way of implementing commands.
I'm also looking for a sample which inserts buttons and groups to the ribbon.
I've also read about a AddIn vor Visual Studio 2010 (creeating a toolbar) that should be installed by the Developer Tools for Inventor 2013.
My installation of the Developer Tools finished without any error but i can see no AddIn in Visual Studio 2010.
Is there a way to set up the AddIn manually?
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It is same to implement commands, creating custom interface in registry-free and registry addin. You can still use the same codes in registry-free.
clarify: no toolbar for VS. long time ago (long before 2010), the wizard did created a toolbar. But no toolbar anymore. The wizard just provides you the template of project to create addin.You will need to create commands, add interface yourself.
But, I think the AU material will be of much help for you. My colleauge Philippe prodduced some templates of custom interface, commands, events for developer's convenience.
thank you for the reply and the interesting link.
Though the material is targeted to C# and VB while my problem is with C++ i really enjoyed the explanation of the autoload mechanism via the .addin files.
But a real help for me was your post 'Notes for migrating C++ add-in to registry free' on adndevblog.typepad.com/manufacturing.
This helped me a lot and i was able to convert the rather old project to registry-free.
