In other words, can ArcGIS Pro load an ArcMap AddIn?

  • An answer on the duplicate says "Add-Ins based on the ArcObjects APIs will not work in Pro".

  • The question itself isn't a duplicate (and I would argue that Creating AddIns for ArcGIS Pro? is a poor quality question for this site). The answer happens to be duplicated with this question, but it is not easily discoverable in google searches. (FWIW, I knew the answer but knew of other non-programmers who were unable to google an answer as no gis.se questions show up in the first page). Commented May 18, 2017 at 10:09

    @JayCummins I agree the two questions don't ask quite the same thing, however the answer there definitely answers your question.

  • One of the ways that someone might try to create an AddIn to ArcGIS Pro, is by doing it as an ArcMap AddIn to plug into ArcGIS Pro. The duplicate Q&A warns that this simply will not work. This question is phrased differently, and both are very brief, but I see them as "two faces of the same coin".

  • Maybe if you are a developer. But non-GIS developers use this site too. Commented May 19, 2017 at 12:01

The use of add ins in ArcGIS Pro is described in ArcGIS Pro Extensibility with Add-Ins
