Native Application Toolkit replacement in CC 9.1

Aug 29, 2013 7:28 AM

Hi All

I hope this is in the right forum. As I have posted in the InDesign SDK forum ''


I have dialogs written with Extension builder 2.1, targeting CS5 to CC.


I just update CC to 9.1 and the NativeApplicationToolkit does not work anymore.


I have found the replacement  for the DispatchEvent method within ICSXSPlugPlugEventHandler in the InDesign SDK, but I am also using the functions ‘PlugPlugErrorCode LoadExtension(const char* inExtensionID)’ and ‘PlugPlugErrorCode UnloadExtension(const char* inExtensionID)’.

So My Question is What are the replacement for these two calls(LoadExtension and UnloadExtension) in the InDesign CC SDK?

Thanks for the help

    Hi g_miles33!


    I wonder the exact same thing. I need to load an extension on startup (that is, not by the user triggering a menu item), and I can't find a way to do it. Have you (it's been almost 4 months since you posted)?


    Does anyone know if/when the InDesign SDK may be updated to provide these functions?

    Or will a new version of the Native Application Toolkit (surprisingly) be released?
