I am new to RobotStudio add-in development. I don't see any way to run an add-in in debugging mode. You compile it and load and run it in RobotStudio with no povisions for debugging. Any ideas on this?
Another way would be to right-click on your add-in project in Visual Studio, select Properties, then go to the Debug tab. Under 'Start Action', select 'Start external program' and browse to the RobotStudio executable.
Now you can work just as if you debugged your own executable (pressing F5 will start RS under the debugger)
If you are local admin and willing to run Visual Studio as Administrator the easiest way is to put in a post-build Xcopy of the files and then add RobotStudio as the Start Program, like Ekelund outlined above. (Its in the manual as well but could be easier to find http://developercenter.robotstudio.com:80/Index.aspx?DevCenter=RobotStudio&OpenDocument&Url=html/08a465af-bdcc-4f65-a647-764c14005d00.htm).
Check out the attached sample and its readme for that type of solution. (Íts 5.60 haven't had time to update it to 5.61 yet).
I have one Shortcut to run Visual Studio normally and another shortcut to run as administrator. You could also create a way to start a specific solution as administrator, etc etc. (See here for examples on how to do it).
