Navisworks 2012 addin

I have an addin I created in 2013. I checked the 2012 API documentation and all of the functionality should be there. But when I place it in the 'Plugins' folder, the add-in tab doesnt show up on the interface. Is there a diferent process to including an addin in 2012? Is there a way to check backward compatibility? It simple appends selected files into the curect document. Thanks.  


(I clicked on one of the recomended topics as I was filling in the heading, it used that topic heading. Can an addmin delete the other post about Revit by me right below this one? Thanks)

I figured it out. I just had to compile it with the 2012 dll. Not suprisingly. Also turns out to be a good way to check to see if your code is compatable.

you are correct. Navisworks .net API is not binary compatible; i.e., you will need to rebuild your app with newest assemblies to work on newest release.
