Using C# and VS 2002 with .NET 1.1

Hello,

I'm interested in doing AutoCAD customization in C#, and that requires
Visual Studio 2002 and ObjectARX. I need to talk to other software (web
services, etc.) that is being created in Visual Studio 2003. VS 2003
implies .NET framework version 1.1.

Do AutoCAD and VS 2002 work with .NET 1.1?

Thank you so much for any help,

Carlos

Hi again,

Just to clarify, a co-worker is creating some web services stuff in C# and
VS 2003. There's a proxy DLL in C# and there's another DLL that is
currently mixed-mode C++ to provide a native C++ interface to me and still
use the .NET framework-based proxy and web services. I've got to use the
interface that he provides to find out where to insert some blocks into a
drawing and what attributes to give them.

I'm starting to think that I might be able to accomplish my AutoCAD
customization using C#. This would make my co-worker's job easier because
he wouldn't have to do that mixed-mode C++ stuff. However, I've got to use
VS 2002 with ObjectARX and he's using VS 2003.

Does anyone know whether there will be a compatibility issue between the two
versions? Will I even be able to write my stuff in C# to begin with?
Again, all I have to do is get some location and attribute information and
then insert a block into the drawing.

Thanks again for your help,

Carlos

If you are using purely C# and the .NET API you do not have the same constraints of using the ObjectARX API that is using C++ and VS2002.

Does that mean I can customize AutoCAD using C# and VS 2003? Is everything
I need included in the ObjectARX SDK?

I'll be watching Dave F.'s latest post, but I can't seem to find any
tutorials on this subject.

As you can tell, I'm very new to this. Thanks so much.

Yes to both but also have a look at the labs located here.
