    RFO Ribbon Add-In - Downloads

    I have started this thread as a "go to" point for the latest RFO Ribbon Addin. The attachments are identical to the ones I posted in the "Coding the app" thread.

    This initial version is fully functioning (except for the "Manage Addins" tool). I am planning a blog post with a detailed explanation of the files and how to add/remove individual commands, etc.

    Basic install instructions are:
    1. Unzip the "RfoRibbon.zip" file to a location on your computer (e.g. "C:\RFO Ribbon Addins").
    2. Unzip the "RFO_RibbonAddins.zip" file to the Revit "Addins" folder.
    3. Edit the "Assembly" parameter in the RFO_RibbonAddins.addin manifest to point to the location from step 1 above.


    FYI the default location of the Revit "Addins" folder on Vista is:
    C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\REVIT \Addins\2012
    and on XP is:
    C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Autodesk\REVIT\Addins\2012

    You do not need to download the "RFO_RibbonAddins_Source.zip" unless you want to look at the underlying c# code.

    Please post any bugs in the "bugs" thread and suggestions in the "suggestions" thread rather than here.

    Note that once all items are unpacked (unzipped) on your machine you will need to "unblock" each dll file, see Jose's post below.

    Excellent work, .. seems to be loading just fine ... however .. if you attempt to install these be sure to "UNBLOCK" the *.dll files!

    Thanks Jose, which version of Windows is that, Windows 7? I didn't get any problems but that is obviously because I built the files on my PC.

    Good lord, I spent almost two days figuring out why I couldn't get the ribbon to work... Forgot 2 lines of code...
    Thanks for the help Krispy! Although I do feel somewhat useless now since I ended up contributing little to nothing.

    I encourage anyone with some apps to add them to the sourecode and reload here... But like Krispy said, suggestions and bugs need to be placed in dedicated threads.

    But you still get credit for coming up with this great idea!

    Thanks to everyone who contributed with ideas and code so far! Still wish that I could be of some help... but I have a feeling that it can┤t be coded in PHP or HTML...

    BTW, just had to order a new shipment of "green cards" due to this project

    You were a big driving force of this project, and have compiled all the add-ins for 2012 i believe? There is no need to edit the source code to add more add-ins, it is possible to just create a new "Vendor" folder for each contributor (similar to the KRSP one) and edit the *.xml file.

    I AM planning a blog post explaining all this in detail, also the "Manage Addins" button will eventually automate the adding and removing of add-ins.
