Outdated version of addon error.

Hi!
I created an AddOn and it works fine on the PC at the office and at my home PC.
The office PC and my Home PC both have installed the Archicad 24 SDK.
When I try to start it on another PC/Laptop on Archicad 24 it give an error in the Addon Manager "Outdated AddOn ... ". On this PC I don't have installed the Archicad 24 SDK.
What could be the reason for this?

I checked with Dependency Walker and it seems fine the versions. [attachment=0]2021-08-04 18_00_50-Dependency Walker - [GISDownloader.apx].jpg[/attachment] I am using the Archicad 24 build 5000 on all PCs.
I have an include library - rapidjson for this AddOn.

Do I have to buy the developer license in order to use addons on other computers?

Mihalcea Bogdan

I really can't figure this out ... I tried the Release Build and still the same error. I have the feeling that I have Visual Studio 2017 installed it makes it work. I don't see any dependency errors in my Release Build Output.
I have read every post about this issue, but those are a bit outdated.

It can be caused by several things, but it's most likely the problem with the rapidjson dependency. Are you sure you deploy rapidjson to other PCs correctly?

I did not deploy it at all. I have to copy the headers to Archicad.exe location? I've read about AddOns that they try to load external dlls from Archicad.exe's location...

I'm not familiar with rapidjson, but if it comes with a dll, you should copy the dll next to the apx file on every computer.

rapidJSON is a header only library. Should I refractor my code to use the provided JSON parser ?

I have absolutely no idea what is happening. Archicad does not give any error messages for this issue. I have http requests in my addon, rapidjson parser, the rest of the includes I think they are fine(BinaryChannel, GXImage Graphics2D etc.). I don't know why does work on my PC(All builds Debug, Release) but on another PC it shows this error THE FILE IS AN OUTDATED ADD-ON THAT CANNOT BE USED WITH THIS ARCHICAD VERSION.
I even compiled it for Archicad 23 and it is working on my PC.
For 2 days I searched topics related to this issue but no success.

Another issue could be the miss of redistributable packages on other computers. Archicad comes with a redistributable package for VS2019. Maybe you are compiling with a later version of VS2019, so the latest redistributables are not installed on other computers (these are installed with Visual Studio on your computer).

Maybe you can try to install the latest VS2019 redistributable package on the other computers, and check if it makes the Add-On work.

Thank you for a new suggestion Viktor!
I was compiling it with VS2017 as it is suggested in the documentation.
I will investigate on this lead.
