    dotNET is pretty complex, and I suspect the Action Recorder storage mechanism is much closer to conventional scripting. I'd rather see it produce an XML metadata file describing the steps taken, plus (possibly) an Action Recorder API for dotNET for more complex manipulation. That way the XML content can be consumed by other operations, including LISP and manual tweaking and possibly even direct consumption by the new core console, and also be available from common network locations (unlike DLL; yes, I know about CASPOL but poking holes in the security for the sake of convenience isn't a good idea).
    If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.
    Some say beauty is in the eye of the Beholder... perhaps so, but I've only seen the disintegration beam.

    What I was referring to would be something similar to what MS Office has called "Record Macro". "Record Macro" currently records to VBA format, which I beleive is considered obsolete. So, the next generation of such a utility seems to me would be to record to .NET VB or C#. Keep in mind users would not have to modifiy the .NET code but could.

    Hi, That is a big wish for me as well. I need to automate things in CAD, but I have to record them first.

    Not a big fan of this wish personally, as there's just too much variation of namespace qualification (within the body of code), etc to be 'usable' to my mind, and would entirely go against Autodesk's efforts to 'push' apps via Exchange.

    That said, regarding local/network assemblies - if you're still using .NET 4 (as I believe 4.5 supports this inherently, but have not intentionally tested for this since C3D 2011), just use LoadFromRemoteSources Attribute as Kean mentions here back in 2011:

    'Tis the season for necromancy

    Need to have DLLs local here, otherwise if any computer is running some of them would be locked "open" by the system and couldn't be replaced. Can't go around to computers to manually kick people out as we have multiple buildings across the city.
