Hi again.
It's been already 4 days that I find myself reading the same lines over and over again and going thorugh all documents and examples in the devkit, and still nothing.
Iv'e got much experience with programming and self-learning but this time I fell clueless.
I beleieve that what I need the most is an explanasion (or at least a reference) of how can I install the examples on Archicad, and than ill be able to study from them.
I spent a lot of time trying to find the way to do that.
Help would be very appriciated.

yours.

Do the following:
  • 1) Open one of the Visual Studio projects;

    2) Build the project;

    3) Drag the built add-on (a DLL with a .apx extension) into the ArchiCAD Add-Ons folder

You created the .apx in step 2 (build the project). That's the product of the build process.
