I’ve been coding new commands for AutoCAD 2012 via VB.Net 2010 Express. I have recently upgraded
to AutoCAD 2014.
My objective is to compile previously coded VB.net 2010 Express (for AutoCAD 2012) to AutoCAD 2014.
Steps I’ve Taken (Visual Basic.Net 2010 Express already present in environment):
Unfortunately, I have been unable to solve this issue. Does anyone have an idea?
Thanks in advance for anything you can do.
Thank you for your quick response, Owen.
I followed your hyperlink; I have already run both ObjectArx 2014 Wizards (for AutoCAD 2014 for Visual Studio 2012; VS 2012 is not on my machine) and AutoCAD 2014 DotNet Wizards (for AutoCAD 2014 for Visual Studio 2012).
I don't see a link for AutoCAD 2014 for Visual Studio 2010 (VB.net) for either wizard, which is what I'm currently running.
What am I doing wrong?
This could be for the reason that you had installed the wizard while being logged in as a different user.
You can try copying the Visual studio project templates manually from :
C:\Users\<user name>\My Documents\Visual
Studio 2012\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual Basic
C:\Users\<user name>\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual Basic
Thank you for responding. I don't have VS 2012, just VS 2010 Express, which had no files in the path you recommended. I did, however, get it working similarly to how you suggested. I found the files I needed (acmgd.dll and acdbmgd.dll) under AutoCAD 2014, so I manually loaded them into a new VB project. Then I copied/pasted my old VB project into my new one, and after that I just needed to add AutoCAD.Interop.dll and Autocad.Interop.Common.dll and it worked.
Thank you for taking the time to respond. You guys are great!
