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/.

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.)
