PackageContents.xml Format Reference

    PackageContents.xml Format Reference

    The PackageContents.xml file contains information about the application package, including information about
    the developer that authored it.

    The information contained in the file can be used to specify which AutoCAD-based
    products and releases the plug-in can be loaded into, their supported operating system,
    and how the application should be loaded, such as load on startup or when a command
    is invoked.

    The following elements are used to define and describe the plug-in:

    • ApplicationPackage
    • CompanyDetails
    • Components

    PackageContents.xml for Download versus Local Deployment

    How you plan to deploy your plug-in determines what should be in the PackageContents.xml file. You need to supply more information when providing a plug-in for download versus
    a local deployment. The following table explains which elements and attributes are
    required, optional, or recommended for the deployment you want to use.
