Launching macros from external application

Can anybody help? 

I need to launch a Revit template project from a server and access a macro that I'm constructing inside that project.  My problem is not launching the project file...I'm having trouble accessing the macro module files inside of the project.  I have the macro .dll imported into my VB.NET project, but can't seem to find a constructor to launch the macro once the project is open.

Does this make any sense?  Maybe what I'm trying to do is easy...I dunno.  But I notice that there is NO documentation on the Revit VSTA classes.


Thanks in advance for all of your time!

Dear mandonate,


You cannot simply launch your own macro in Revit. Your application never drives rRevit, Revit drives it.


What you can do, however, it to set up a system of event handlers so that your code executes automatically on document open.
