    API Addin Development: How do you debug your addins?

    Christoph Engelhardt

      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
