VS17 : Attached to Archicad.exe and debugging is not working - SOLVED

Mihalcea Bogdan

Hello! *Edit* I am using Archicad 24.
I have a problem debugging an add-on. The add-on works in Archicad very well after I followed every step to setup the environment required to develop Addons.
I attached Visual Studio 2017 to the Archciad.exe as it was mentioned in the documentation but the
DBPrintf("some string");
still not gives any output in the Output window.
Before you will redirect me to any other post I've already read this post https://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=72673
I have my solution configured to "Native code", I enabled the "Attach to process" in the debug options.
Basically I made every step the documentation mentioned.
These are my #includes in the code

#include "APIEnvir.h"
#include "ACAPinc.h"

#include "ResourceIds.hpp"
#include "DGModule.hpp"
#include "APIdefs_Goodies.h"
#include "GSRoot.hpp"
#include <iostream>
Please help me amazing developers from Graphisoft
Thank you!

This was not the answer. This is an error which can be ignored as some said on this forum. I updated archicad and it started to work just like that. I still got some errors from vs2017 about not found .pdb files related to Archicad’s main dll files.

Viktor Kovacs mentioned in another post that in the Debugging menu -> Command should be set to Archicad.exe file location. Everything works now.

Still looking?
