You must be sure to Unblock the downloaded zip file before extracting the DLL, and it must be loaded from a local drive. Example for unblocking:
I deleted all extracted data and returned to original downloaded .zip file. Right-clicked, Properties, Unblocked. Then extracted to a local directory and upon the NETLOAD command, navigating to the AeccDbCogoPointHelperSample.dll, loading it, returning to comand line and entering MOVE_POINT_LABEL, I get the attached error message, the bottom contents of which are copied and pasted here:
See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.
************** Exception Text **************
System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'AeccDbCogoPointHelperMgd, Version=1.0.3675.19201, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF.
To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.
Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.
To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog].
************** Loaded Assemblies **************
(I've deleted a bunch that were listed here but that I don't believe are relevant)
Assembly Version: 22.214.171.124
Win32 Version: 126.96.36.199
************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.
Just to be clear, what I'm trying to load IS compatible with C3D 2012? Unless the intended outcome of the assembly is to accomplish what I mention in my previous post, I won't request any more feedback on this. I don't want to take time away from other people's issues that might be more worthy of your expertise with the software.
I am not sure if the routine is compatible with 2012.
It is not a complete program. It is merely an example that Tony whipped up to show how you can control the dragged location of a point label.
To make this do what you want, there will be more coding involved.
As Stacy noted, this is just a sample program. It will not do what you are looking for directly. The error you are getting, I believe, is due to you not having extracted both dll's to the same location.
That being said, it runs fine in 2010, but it Fatal Errors everytime for me in 2012 but not always at the same place in the code. Sometimes I can select a point, but unles it is already in a dragged state it is not recognized as being selected so the command ends. Other times it will crash when selecting the point. And yet once it crashed as soon as I entered the command.
All of that to say that No, it will not work for you in 2012 as is.
Ahh, that clears things up a bit. I'm starting to feel as if we drafters without much (or any) coding knowledge are lame ducks for the batch of kids coming out of school these days. I fear the day US companies begin importing Asian and east European college grads in droves instead of investing in training for older workers who are "set in their ways". Hard to argue against paying 1/2 the wage to a twice-as-competent worker. I GOTTA GET GOING WITH THIS STUFF (custom coding). =)
Sorry for the rant.
Thanks to you both for your time!
