API Addin Development: How do you debug your addins?

Hi there,

 

I am currently developping my first SldWorks Addin in C#.

To display debug messages, I use Debug.Print (using system.diagnostics) and the tool debug monitor (sysinternals) to send and capture debug messages.

However it is kind of cumbersome that I need to close SldWorks for any modifications on my addin and restart SldWorks afterwards. Is there a way to unload and reload an addin in a running SldWorks session?

 

Is there a best practice way to debug addins?

Thanks in advance for hints and tipps!

Best

Chris
