How to develop ARX applications for AutoCAD?

A - answer ARX applications for AutoCAD are programs written mostly in the MS Visual C++ language. To compile the source code you need the appropriate Autodesk libraries (ObjectARX, or ObjectDBX/RealDWG) and a compiler/linker/debugger (environment, IDE) by Microsoft.

To develop ARX applications for AutoCAD 2000, 2000i and 2002 you need the development tool Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 (resp. MS Visual Studio), to make ARX applications for AutoCAD 2004 you need MS Visual C++ 7.0 (resp. MS Visual Studio .NET 2002), for ARX applications for AutoCAD 2007, 2008, and 2009 you will need MS Visual Studio 2005 (VS2005), for AutoCAD 2010 and 2011 you need Visual Studio 2008 (VS2008).

CAD Studio - as an Autodesk Developer Network (ADN) member - offers custom development of ARX applications.
