First off, you may have seen this before here...
However, that does work for me, not sure why. I'm using VB 2010 Express, and really enjoying it! When I add my references, acdbmgd and acmgd from AutoCAD 2012 folder, everything looks good. When I hit compile, i get the errors shown in the attachment.
What have I done wrong?
Thank you for your help.
Regards & Happy Easter
hi ryan, just an idea, have you tried setting the reference path of the acmgd file to the downloaded, appropriate sdk folder (as opposed to the autodesk one)?
I had tried that, but to make sure, I tried it again, with not success. If I'm correct in understanding you, its the one that defaults to C:\ObjectARX 2012\inc
I also ran a repair on .NET framework 4., and ran the 3.5 SP1 install too. Nothing changed.
Hmmm, what now?
So, I found the advanced compiler options! It was set to '.NET 4 Framework Client Profile'. If I change it to .'NET Framework 4', it compiles, but doesn't run.
Error is thrown before form appears.
does acad2012 know that you are now targeting .net 4.0? i.e. have you allocated the acad configuration file on your system and changed version to 4.0?
sorry, was a bit short.
on your main drive should be the autodesk file for your acad application and in there an acad configuration file (either .exe or .config). this config file contains the acad's target .net framework (and not much more) which should conform to the framework you set for you project, as you say 4.0 (and not be commented out); you can open and edit the config file e.g. with notepad
<!--All assemblies in AutoCAD are fully trusted so there's no point generating publisher evidence-->
This is in a file called acad.exe.config. Presuming that is v4.0...
I'm runnning Win7 x64 if that makes a difference...
i'm stuck. recap: applicationservices namespace found after project's target framework set to 4.0; acad config file also 4.0; project compiles;
"...but doesn't run"- you start debugging but no feedback in the immediate window, hit breakpoints, any exceptions thrown etc?
