What is requirements for Autocad 2013?
I made plugin for AutoCad 2012 and it works file but it doesn't work in 2013.
I tried to load my dll by netload command.
No messages, no errors - just no reaction.
I use .NET 4.0.
What should I do to create plug-in for 2013? Is 2012 compatible with 2013 or I must create separate dll?
Since AutoCAD 2012 and 2013 have different internal versions, 18.2 vs 19.0. AutoCAD 2013 also uses different file format (DWG 2013), so for sure unmanaged DLL references in acdbmgd.dll of 2013 are different with 2012. Remember acdbmgd.dll is just a wrapper that calls a bunch of C++ native DLLs.
Your plug-in for AutoCAD 2012 references acdbmgd.dll (and other dll files) version 18.2. Therefore, this plug-in does not work to reference unmanaged assemblies version 19.0 of AutoCAD 2013. For that reason, AutoCAD 2012 plug-in is not compatible with 2013.
You can make the new project with the same code with 2012 (can be done with Add Link .cs files in VS 2010, .NET 4.0) that references 2013 assemblies, then this new plug-in will work with AutoCAD 2013.

...and add the file AcCoreMgd.dll additionally to the references.
