I would like to create an addin in VS2010 & IN2012. How I could able to do this?
I have gone through the help and started with "simpleAddin". But, while building I could able to see the following error.
The same error for all Addins. Someone's help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Error 1 The command "mt.exe -manifest "E:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor 2012\SDK\DeveloperTools\Samples\VB.NET\AddIns\Simp
" exited with code 9009. SimpleAddIn
Firstly, please take a look at the tutorial on registry-free addin
As to the error you hit, it is just an error in the post-build script. in this case, that would mean the 'mt.exe' does not exist in the system path. you will need to search where the 'mt.exe' is on your machine and add the path to the system path. Of course, you can also use absolute path ,e.g.
"c:\...\mt.exe" "....addin.manifest" "....\addin.dll"
Thank you for your reply. I have gone through entire help. But, still I could not able to create a Valid .manifest file.
I could write the code and build successfully (Prior to this I used to work with Macros)
Could you please elaborate towards .manifest file
Thanks for your time.
I have followed the steps as mentioned below. But, still in vain.
created a Project by taking Autodesk Inventor Addin Template
created a solution
Created a "Testaddin.manifest" file in /Myproject/ folder
Added "Testaddin.manifest" into the solution
Created "Testaddin.addin" file in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\Inventor 2012\Addins
Build the solution
Copied the Testaddin.dll from "\TestAddin\bin" to "\Inventor 2012\Bin"
Still I could not able to see "TestAdin" in Autodesk Inventor - Addins.
It seems that I'm almost nearer in creating Addin.
Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated.
this is a blog on the registry-free addin. You will know what is manifest file.
you seemed to forget to put the *.addin file to the specific folders which Inventor will look for the addins are to be loaded.
again, please take a look at the blog I mentioned above and followed the steps.
