I'm having problems debugging a VB class to work inside AutoCad. (Previous question). This class references an Autocad dll.
So I thought I would part test this class by writing another application with code that says
Dim a as new cadclass
and step through.
When I try to step through, I get an error to say that the Autocad dll cannot be found!

The Autocad DLL may not be a .NET library. If it isn't then you cannot directly instantiate it's classes - you have to use Interop instead.

I'm not that clever, and I don't understand Interop.

What I did was this.
In my AcadClass, (written in VB / VS2008 ) I added a reference to an Autocad dll - acdbmgd.dll
VS Properties description is "Implementation of the ObjectDBX .NET Managed Wrapper"
However it was not under the .NET tab

The object browser shows all the properties etc.

It compiles correctly.
My class is designed to be "inprocess" to AutoCad.
I went this route to debug part of my class because I could not attach AutoCad. I have now succeeded in this, so this is no longer necessary.
