    Default Sample APIs on installation CD

    Has anybody used these samples "APIs" on the installation CD, if so what should be done other that editing the Revit.ini, do I need to compile, and create dll files.

    Thanks

    ET,

    Yes, you'll need to compile the samples on the CD.

    Copy the samples to your computer. Open the solution file with VS.NET and compile it. A BIN directory will be created in the same location as the solution file, and the DLL will be placed there. Edit the Revit.ini file to point to the DLL located there. Run the solution and it'll launch Revit for you. It should appear in the Tools > External Tools menu in Revit.

    You can also use Visual C# Express- a freebie from Microsoft instead of the full-blown Visual Studio.

    Note that the Express versions won't work with Revit 8.1. Support for VS 2005 and all it's variants will be included with Revit 9.

    See this thread for more info.
