    How hard is it to learn to create VB.net add-ins? and where can I learn how?

    Evan Dlugopolski

      Hello all,

       

      I am wondering how hard it would be for a young mechanical designer who has mid-level VBA knowledge and computer skills to learn how to create solidworks add-ins using VB.net (preferably).  I would like to self teach myself everything I need to know but I am worried I will be biting off more than I can chew.  From my initial searching and experimentation I learned right away that there is much more to it than VBA.  I know little about the registry, guids, .dll or .bat files, referencing, pointing, libraries, etc etc and that all seems to be a big part of creating add-ins.

       

      so.....

      Anyone have any input or advice?

       

      Thanks,

      Evan
