Yeah, I am aware of the 'MyFirstPlugin'. I'll try compile on my home laptop, and see if its a machine issue. If not, I'll post a recap.
Thank you for your help!
The fact that it compiles but does not run, and the other clues from what you have sid in this thread inducate that your have an issue that is different from the other thread you mentioned:
You are doing a stand-alone VB.NET EXE project, aren't you?
If yes, then you CANNOT USE AutoCAD .NET API assemblies (acdbmgd.dll, acmgd.dll...), thus the error you got when trying to run your app.
For EXE app, you can only use AutoCAD COM API, or you can do Acad .NET API DLL project and expose it as COM (if you know what does that mean).
Norman, I think you've got it! I neglected to mention that its a standalone app, mostly incororating Excel to Inventor communication. I'm using the AutoCAD bit to update a title block.
Yikes, the smallest things get overlooked. Didn't even think to mention it.

I've got a vague idea of what you mean. Any links that I can follow or read though to guide me through it?
Appreciate the help and patience. I think I've stumbled upon the potential answer within AutoCAD Exchange. Just never knew what to search for. Case of 'you don't know what you don't know'. Thats why the forum is so helpful
