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.
I have this one last question.
In my Application Folder File installing property Default location set to [ProgramFilesFolder]AutoDesk\ApplicationPlugins\.
This put the dll to C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins. Instead I need to put the dll in C:\Program Files\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins since autocad loads the plugin from that location. How do I do that? What do I set the default location to?
Just figure out the solution for my last question
set the target Platform as 64 bit app and default location to "[ProgramFiles64Folder]Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins
In AutoCAD 2013 we added the %programdata%\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins folder to the list of Autoloader locations. We did this because using %programfiles% causes problems when trying to build a common MSI installer for x86 and x64 (i.e. an x86 MSI). Use %programdata% if you're targeting AutoCAD 2013 only and need to create an 'all user' installation.
