    Hi Cheena,

    The difference between a lightweight add-on and the standard add-on is the installation method.

    The lightweight add-on will use the Extension Control Center to install the zip you mentioned.

    The standard add-on uses a custom-built installer and is installed in the Add-on Administration facility of SAP Business One.

    The easiest way that I know of to create a standard add-on installer is to use B1DE.

    You can create one yourself by using other tools (WiX, InstallShield, etc...) but I'm not familiar with those.

    • Hi Cheena,

      It's not mandatory to create UDTs or UDFs in any type of add-on. One example is an add-on that only modifies screens.

      Creating UDTs and UDFs can be done if you need it, and it can be done in standard or lightweight add-ons. Normally this is done the first time the add-on runs.

      So, to recap, a lightweight add-on is essentially the same as a standard add-on, except for the installation method.
