Administration Menu for Add-ins

An add-in often contains commands intended both for end users and the administrator of the system. You can add these commands as menu items using the IEdmCmdMgr5::AddCmd method. The downside to this is that the administrator commands are displayed in the Windows Explorer and, unless you check the logged-in user, all users are able to run the administrator commands.

In SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional 6.4, a new flag is added to IEdmCmdMgr5::AddCmd, EdmMenuFlags::EdmMenu_Administration, which controls whether a menu command is hidden in the Windows Explorer. When the flag is set, the command is displayed only in SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional’s Administration tool when you right-click the add-in.
