I'm also having issues with the eDrawings host control in 2015. Has anyone successfully used this yet? I'm using VS 2012. I get the attached message when attempting to add the eDrawingControl to the form. I didn't have this issue with any prior versions of eDrawings.

Hi Jeremy, here is the process I finally figured out to get eDrawings up and running under VS 2008 (should work under VS 2012). You need to be logged into the development computer as an administrator.
1. If eDrawings is already installed on your development computer, go into Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the old version.
2. Download and install the new version of eDrawings, should come out as eDrawings2015SE.
3. If it is not already located there, move the entire eDrawings2015SE folder to C:\Program Files\Common Files.
4. Under the System32 folder, make sure all three of these files are present: ATL100.DLL, MSVCP100.DLL, MSVCR100.DLL. If you don't have them, do a quick Google search and you can download them.
5. Open a command prompt and type in regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\eDrawings2015SE\EModelView.dll" BE SURE TO INCLUDE THE QUOTES AROUND THE FILE LOCATION.
Once this is done, you should be able to go into your Visual Studio, open your project, and add the eDrawings control to your toolbox. Also, go into your application's Property pages and add a reference to the EModelView.DLL file. Save your project, and you should then be able to add an EModelViewer to your forms.
