Hello,
When I try to test (on addOn Management) my addon built with Visual Studio 10, it doesn't appear in the list on AddOn Management. However, when I check with another addon found on the website, it appears on the list. In this way, I can't use it on Archicad 18.
I think there is a problem with my addon; probably something I missed...
Does someone have an idea on this problem ?
Regards.

That usually means that the MDID resource is not valid. Open your add-on as a resource file in Visual Studio, and see if it contains an MDID resource at all, and the values in there are not 'dummies'. You can create a valid local ID for your add-on with your developer ID and the AddOnAdmin tool in the devkit.

Sorry for the late answer,

Akos

Thank you for your answer,
I get through this problem but I don't know what it was. I started the process again and it works. I just have failed when I put the keys.
Regards.

That usually happens when you type in the developer ID, instead of copying and pasting.

Best, Akos
