Try using .net Frameworks 4.0 and 3.5.

You don't need to install the ObjectARX files for your project if your programming c# or VB
ObjectARX is for c++ Programming.

You also don't need to use COM Autocad.interop and you should start with a .NET API solution.

You need to change the references and recompile for each version 2012/2013, as AutoCAD 2013 has changes in the API (some things were moved from one dll to another, and other changes)  also, 2013, added a new dll to reference in the project (AcCoreMgd.dll).
