Title: How do I Install an add-in
Post by: bugbuster on April 20, 2014, 09:33:57 pm
I am relatively new to PellesC.

I would like to be able when printing source code from the IDE to have it print in color as it appears in the IDE. I found an Add-In that is for color printing. When compiled it generates a DLL file. What do I do with the DLL file to get ti to perform the desired task of color printing ? I copied the DLL file to the PellesC bin directory and rebooted my windowsx 8 laptop. Still no luck with color printing. What do I need to do next ?

Thanks.

Copy that dll to PellesC\bin\AddIns folder.
Restart poide
From Tools -> Customize.. -> Add-Ins check Add-In that you want to use.

An another option is export that file to PDF or RTF and print that file

I copied the DLL file as you described and I even rebooted my windows 8.1 laptop.

After the reboot when i run the PellesC IDE and navigate to the "Tools -> Customiez -> Add-Ins" display nothing is listed ! I even tried to print some source code and it sitll prints in black and white.

What else do I need to do ?

If you are using 64-bit ide poide64.exe, you have to copy 64-bit dll to AddIns64 folder.
PrintC64.dll is now in PrintC_WS_v1.1.zip.

I did indeed copy the dll file to the Addins64 directory. But it would seem that it is not the 64 bit version of the dll file. I have been google searchign for PrintC_WS_v1.1.zip and I can't find it anywhere. Can you give me a location from which i can download it ?

Thanks.
