Create basic AddOn for Archicad 22 in Visual Studio

Anonymous

Hello. Please very good if you can help me. I want to create an AddOn for Archicad 22 that is similar to Eptar Reinforcement as design.

I installed Visual Studio 2017, Archicad 22, I have the Archicad developer key, but I can not compile a code and install it as an addon in Archicad.

I want to learn how to make a very simplified addon, to see in Archicad that a window with a function opens and to go.

I looked at c ++ tutorials, c # .. but in vain.

I saw the extension of an addon is *. APX. do I have to do a Setup.exe for addon or how to do it? Interface in Archicad I create in C #?

I've been trying to see the examples from Archicad, but I get errors.

Some print screens would be very useful if you can not do a basic tutorial.

Please be very nice if you can help me. Bogdan

Sorry for my bad enlish i hope you understand

Try making that:
const GSSize    hwLen  = static_cast<GSSize>(strlen (hwText) + 1);

the compilation works fine but I couldn't see the Hello world on Archicad.
Menu loaded, but When I click it, nothing happened.

When I finished the compilation first time, the tool showed me a warning. Second time, it didn't.

That's a link warning, but you can ignore that one - it's only advice (and irrelevant in this case). It will only show up when you rebuild following a change.
