I'm trying to load an assembly on AutoCAD startup. It basically is an arx application written in c++, compiled in .NET 4.0. The AutoCAD Version is 2012.
When i send the netload command a window with the title "ARX Application - Incompatible" pops up, and it says:
"AutoCAD is attempting to load .../xyz.dll which is not compatible with AutoCAD. What do you want to do?"
And then i can choose that i want to load it anyway and after it is loaded it all works. So, the Issue here is really just the message and i want to ask if there is a way i can make it disappear. Maybe i can configure my application so that AutoCAD recognises it as compatible or i can somehow suppress the error message? Or maybe someone just can help me understand how it can come to such an incompatibility. Where can i start searching?
Thanks in advance.
I work with VB.NET so I'm no expert with C++/ARX, but writning in C++ I think you need to rename your.dll to .ARX and use ARXLOAD instead of NETLOAD.
I think there are a few people on this forum that have crossed the boundaries between .NET and ARX, but we're mostly .NET people. There is another forum for ARX where you might get a better response.
Thanks for response. I tried what you said, renamed my file and used arxload but the error message remains the same. But you're right...i should try the ARX forum...thanks!
