how to open .ard extension?

Hi experts,

i have an addon for billing services. It runs well on SAP business one 8.83 PL7 perfectly but after the upgrade to Version 9 PL 5 the addon seems not to work.

I am suspecting that the COM objects are not compatible and I want a way to edit the source code from .ard extension of the addon.

Is there a way to open the .ard file to edit ?

    Hi Justice,

    The ard file is an XML file that is used to register the addon within SAP Business One. It can be opened with any text or XML editor (eg Notepad) but it doesn't contain any source code and it can't be used to change which COM objects are being used by the addon executable. To do that I'm afraid you will need the full source code and probably a development suite, eg Visual Studio (depending on the language that the source code is written in).

    Kind Regards,
