Dear All,

 

I am using Adobe SDK to develop .api. Using sample code - basicplugin project. It can be built successfully. I put .api into adobe plugins directory. Reopen Acrobat and it can show menu. But it will show “invalid plugin detected. Adobe Reader will quit". I don't know if it needs to be enable by using tools Makekeys and singpluing to enable .api.

Enable with MakeKeys, as described in the documentation. But first, you must apply for a license from Adobe, they will review your application, and might (or might not) allow it, then  quote you a fee - up to $25,000 pa for some types of plug-in. You will also need Acrobat (paid for) to develop and test the plug-in, even if writing a Reader plug-in/.

I would rather google "What is the point of this community if the answers are going to be broken links and advice to go find things for yourself on google"?

Your choice. I thought, since Adobe clearly don't care to keep their links stable, it would be safer in the long term to post a tested Google argument. The risk of ingrates is just part of the joy of volunteering. Have a nice day.

Awesome.   The question is still open if someone has an actual answer.  I'd be very grateful for some real assistance.

Also: Adobe will NOT allow you to make a plug-in for an obsolete version of Reader. You must use Reader DC (as well as makekeys, licensing etc etc.)
