View Full Version : ObjectARX 2007
27th Sep 2010, 08:05 pm
I use Autocad Land Desktop 2007 and I would like to start coding for it in ObjectARX. However, I don't seem to find 2007 version...
As a side question, what VS should be used for this?
I already tried to create a simple arx with VS 2008 and ObjectARX 2006, but autocad complains that:
X.arx is incompatible with this version of AutoCAD
where X is the name of my dll/arx.

Here is a link to register for a license and download the current ObjectARX SDK's (http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/item?siteID=123112&id=785550).
You may have to Google AutoCAD 2007 ObjectARX SDK (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&rls=com.microsoft%3Aen-us&q=autocad+2007+objectarx+sdk&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=) to find a suitable alternative download location for older SDK's.
As I understand it, the current VS (Express/Full) should be sufficient, provided the appropriate SDK.
Hope this helps!

Thank you for your reply!
I have found ObjectARX 2007 at http://download.autodesk.com/esd/objectarx/2007/Arx_All.exe
I'll give it a try...

As a note for lost seeker that arrives at this post, I have tried OARX 2007 with VS Express 2008. Everything builds just fine, but Autocad complains:
Unable to load X.arx file.
So VS 2005 Express is required, maybe..
- followed the advices here (http://through-the-interface.typepad.com/through_the_interface/2006/07/getting_the_obj/comments/page/1/)for wizard (but didn't have time to check how it works)
- and then I have opened the help; put the hello world example into my new project (console, then some tweaks in project properties) and compiled
- VC throws LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'mfc80u.lib' (!)
- Express => no mfc 8)
- provided some mfc folder and the dll/arx was build successfully (probably should provide mfc from VS 2005, but I have no such thing)
And I have a running app now telling Hello world to the people :)
