I have made a Button addin for ArcMap in Visual Studio 2010, but I don't know how to deploy it.

I tried debugging it from ArcMap but nothing happens.

  • Deploy or debug? – blah238 Oct 8 '12 at 2:38

For deploying without any setup tool, double-click the *.esriAddIn file. This file could be found in the debug folder, after build the project in Visual Studia 2010. Add-ins for ArcGIS Desktop 10

  • Now i want to create an addin which launches some windows by clicking a button I've deployed in ArcMap, can you help me with that. – Avinash Nirankari Oct 8 '12 at 5:19
  • arcmap add-in button has "OnClick" event. you can show your form or window in this event. [sample code:] protected override void OnClick() { Form1 form = new Form1(); form.ShowDialog(); } – Emi Oct 8 '12 at 6:36
