I am experiencing a strange problem and I suppose it is because of some technical detail that I dont currently know.
I have done the first chapter from Windows Communication Foundation 4 Step by Step.
I have built myself a simple service and separete console client that talks with the service and it goes pretty well.
I have made absolutley the same client inside AutoCAD 2012 x64 and tried to call the service and I receive the following error provided on screenshot.
I have provided both codes for you to see. Can you explain the problem? If you provide me a link to something I will be greatful.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am going to answer it here myself.
We need the app.config loaded. When we have Conosle Client App the config is loaded, but when we make a library client ( .dll that we have to NETLOAD ) it is not loaded anywhere and therefore the config is unavailible.
I have solved my problem by pasting the configuration in acad.exe.config. That way my WCF client config is availible the to .dll which is hosted inside AutoCAD.
Here I have found a pretty good intro video for WCF hosted inside AutoCAD. ( Mine was outside of AutoCAD ) :
