This template is a standard VB.NET class library project for use with Mastercam 2017. The project has a reference to the NETHook3_0.dll located in the root directory of your Mastercam 2017 installation. However, if you installed into a directory other than the default installation directory you may need to update the project reference to the NETHook3_0.dll in order for your project to compile.
If you wish to target a different version of Mastercam simply select the NETHook3_0.dll from your Mastercam folder.
The included ProjectSetup documents detail setup for building debuging a NETHook.
Visual Studio Free Community Edition 2017 is supported.
