I have an addin that needs to load when the autocad loads or when user type the command. It works fine with autocad 2012 but does not work with 2013. The addin dll is located in %appdata%autodesk\ApplicationPlugins. If I use Netload command to load the dll in 2013 and it works fine. But I need that addin to load either when user type the command or when autocad start up. I have checked the http://through-the-interface.typepad.com/through_t
which was very helpful. But still could not get it workingin 2013.

Solved! by StephenPreston. See the answer in context.
I suggest you go back and watch the tutorial on Autoloader again. (Unless my Mac is editing your XML without telling me - which I doubt) your XML is incomplete and has typos in it. Among other things -
- You're missing a RuntimeRequirements section.
- You have elements/parameters beginning with lowercase characters (including your <Components/> secion, which means you effectively haven't defined any Components).
- You have a stray 'd' at the end of the ComponentEntry line.
Also, search the AutoCAD helpfiles for 'appautoloader' and you'll find a list of XML elements and whether they are required or optional.
You could create a lisp file that calls netload. The lisp file would then be placed in the users startup suite. Since it appears the dll is on the machine you dont need to modify the acad.exe.config file to loadFromRemoteSources.
I just try the sample add in from here http://adndevblog.typepad.com/autocad/2012/04/auto
That one also did not load.
Could this be your problem? -
Thanks for your reply. I have looked up the link that you have posted. The solution in the link did not solve my problem. Still none of the .net plugins loads when auto cad strats. Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.
Is the Realase Max 19 in bundle, can you netload manually, etc.......
Just many things it could be, might be best to post xml file from bundle or if it errors ExtensionApplication.Intialize it will not load.
Yes, I can netload manually. It does not show any error or anything like that. its clear that it is just not loading when aucad starts up. Attached with this is the xml that I used for 2013. However for 2012, I did nt use any xml. It has been 5 days now. I am stuck. PLease let me if there is anything i can do to solve this.
Where is the dll located? Instead of using this:
Try typing in the full path to the dll.
