We have a single MEP license, and 6 Autocad licenses. Due to the 'way of things' the workstation that I use for development/coding is the one with MEP installed.
When I create a new project using the handy wizard thingy (details here: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=
Obviously I specify the location of the one in the MEP folder path. I'm wonding should I ever reach the state that my coded creations are set loose on my colleagues with Vanilla autocad, would there be a problem with the fact that the executables are in different locations?
It's probably a daft question, I'm still getting my head around how .Net works..
Solved! Go to Solution.
As far as I understand your question, your users who use your .NET DLL in AutoCAD (vanilla or MEP, does not matter) do not have to be concerned about where the AutoCAD executable (acad.exe) is. The .NET dll can only run after being NETLOADED (or loading on demand) AFTER AutoCAD being already started. The DLL runs inside AutoCAD process.
The reason, that Acad plugin wizard in Visual studio asks you where the Acad executable is, is that it will let Visual Studio know how to start AutoCAD for debugging when you press F5. This has nothing to do with user using the .NET DLL your project produces.
