1. using Autodesk Vault 2012
2. using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
3. I located my dll and vcet.config files in C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Vault 2012\Extensions\BrdnHelloWorld\
problem is i can't get it to load, could someone please take a look at the code or give advice as to were i should place the 2 files.
The API documentation has an article called "How to customize Vault Explorer" in the Getting Started section. That article should go over all the steps in creating a Vault Explorer plug-in.
I also have a video showing how to create a Vault Explorer plug-in starting with a blank Visual Studio project.
Thanks for your reply..I watched your video yesterday and the code I posted is per your video, and thats why i posted my question cause i could not get it to work. as well I copied the HelloWorldVB code from the SDK and it also would not load.
Thanks again for the reply.
FYI..from what i read today autodesk vault 2012 (Client) basic cant load custom commands..like helloworld.dll
from Autodesk vault SDK..
There are various ways to customize Vault Explorer through the API. You can...
Availability This feature is not available in base Vault. Vault Workgroup, Vault Collaboration or Vault Professional is required.
Correct, you cannot plug-in to Vault Explorer if you are using Vault Basic. Sorry, I missed that in your original post.
If you want to write a custom feature, you have to write your own EXE.
