With the release of ArcGIS Pro 3.x, Esri introduced breaking changes to ArcGIS Add-Ins with the migration from .NET 4 to .NET 6. As a result, users need to upgrade Add-Ins for ArcGIS Pro 3.
Should you need help with the ArcGIS Pro 3 upgrade or the Add-in upgrade, DDS is here!
ArcGIS Desktop Add-Ins are extensions to ArcGIS Desktop (ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Desktop 10.x) developed by Esri. They are used to add custom functionality and capabilities to ArcGIS Desktop. Add-Ins can be created using .NET languages, such as C# and Python, and the ArcGIS Pro SDK, which provides a set of APIs and tools for building extensions for the software. Add-Ins can be used to automate tasks, add new tools, or extend the user interface, among other things. They can be installed and used by end users to enhance the functionality of their ArcGIS Desktop software, and are designed to integrate seamlessly with the software’s existing features and tools.
Upgrading ArcGIS Desktop Add-Ins to ArcGIS Pro 3 is necessary because the software has been updated and improved, and older Add-Ins may not be compatible with the latest version. Upgrading ArcGIS Desktop Add-Ins ensures they continue to function correctly and take advantage of new features and performance improvements in latest releases. Additionally, not upgrading your Add-Ins may result in compatibility issues and prevent you from using the software to its full potential.
Upgrading ArcGIS Add-ins from .NET 4 to .NET 6 using the ArcGIS Pro SDK typically involves the following steps:
The exact steps involved in upgrading an add-in from .NET 4 to .NET 6 will depend on the specific add-in and its code. It is recommended to consult the ArcGIS Pro SDK documentation for the latest information on how to upgrade add-ins to .NET 6.
