Add the Add-In DLL file to an appropriate directory on the user's computer; that is:

C:\Program Files\( new dir )

Register the DLL as appropriate to your platform:

·If compiled as a native Win32 DDL, such as VB6 or C++, register the DDL using the regsvr32 command from the command prompt
 
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\MyCompany\EAAddin\EAAddin.dll"
 
·If compiled as a .NET DLL, such as C# or VB.NET, register the DLL using the RegAsm command from the command prompt
 
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\RegAsm.exe "C:\Program Files\MyCompany\EAAddin\EAAddin.dll" /codebase

Place a new entry into the registry using the registry editor (run regedit) so that Enterprise Architect recognizes the presence of your Add-In.

Add a new key value EAAddIns under the location:

·HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sparx Systems for single users
