This is really exciting news for all you developers out there. Autodesk is making the process of loading an add-in for use with Inventor a lot easier. No more complicated registration process is required. Simply create an addin file that tells Inventor where to locate your applications DLL file and then instruct Inventor on how it should load. You also will have the option of only loading the add-in on demand when it is required by the user. This will also be good news for users looking for quicker Inventor load times.
You can look forward to some updates to the CADToolbox.com add-ins for Inventor 2012 coming soon.
