Note, The Hello World program that I have is a AutoCAD ARX download.
I have not made any code changes that I know of so it should be usable
with my version of AutoCAD if I can get it correctly setup.
Still working on that problem.
so I must close AutoCAD before starting the VB.net 2008 express?
Then load the VB hello world into the VB.net editor?
Then run the Hello world program in the VB.net editor and it should start AutoCAD?
Then use Netload the Autocad Dll in AutoCAD?
Is that the corrrect proceedure?

That's the way debugging of dotNET-DLL's in AutoCAD works
Didn't you look to the link to Keyn Wamlsley's site?
Also start your personal searcher (Google) for video's to that, there are a lot! E.g. >>>my first plug-in Training<<< will be found (lesson 4 is for debugging).

Could you give me the link to the Keyn Wamlsley's website and I will take a look at it.
I look at Kean Walsley Web site called "Through the Interface" It talked about making
a file in the project folder to start AutoCAD.exe in a express project. I need to take a closer look
at it yet.
look within this thread to message 10, there I have placed a hyperlink within my last sentence called >>>this blog<<<, just click it!

So do I have to make a file with the following informaiton in it and put it in the project folder?
<PropertyGroup Condition=" '$(Configuration)|$(Platform)' == 'Debug|AnyCPU' "> <StartAction>Program</StartAction>
<StartProgram>C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2007\acad.exe</StartProgram>
and follow the instruction in that webpage to get Hello world to work?

Not "create a file" as you already have a VBPROJ-file, you just have to modify this section within your existing VBPROJ-file of your project.

The webpage talks about a called file "MyProjectName.vbproj.user". It says it shoulld be in the same folder as the file "ClassLibrary1.vbproj.user". I don't see a file called Helloworld.vbproj.user or "ClassLibrary1.vbproj.user.
So in our Autodesk Sample Helloworld. What file to I place the above code in. Do I use a text editor like word to
do this? For visual express 2008. should the first line have a 2003 in it or a 2008?
sorry, I don't use the Express-version so I never had to play with that workarounds.
And YES, you have to modify the .VBPROJ.USER file (not as I mentioned above the .VBPROJ-file).
If the .VBPROJ.USER file does not exist (then this may be one of the differences between the express and the prof. version) you have to create it.
Sorry for my mistake in the previous post!

So create a file called Helloworld.vbproj.user with notepad and place
the above code (message 16) in it then
put that file in the project folder?
Then follow the proceedure in message 12?
