Hi,

Please download the General API development kit, you'll find plenty of examples there. Our advice is to go through them, and explore what's happening.

Best, Akos

Hello,
This could probably be because your toolset version does not match the required toolset version.
try downloading the vs2015 toolset v140. if the problem is still there do tell here

ARCHICAD 21 and 22 both use the Visual Studio 2015 compiler for building add-on projects. With the appearance of Visual Studio 2017 and 2019 you’ll need to do a few extra hops to be able to build your add-ons.
Please read this blog post for further details: Working in Visual Studio 2017

Please note that ARCHICAD 23 will use the Visual Studio 2017 toolset for building Add-On projects. So you won't be able to build your add-on projects in Visual Studio 2015.
You can check the new API features and technical changes in ARCHICAD 23 here.
