Developers

 

If you are a developer that want to use CCAPI. You have a several option:

  • You can use the demo codes provided in the CCAPI Package for Developers (download link is below). You may find some example for a few languages such as C/C++/C#.
  • You can also use imcsx's implementation for C#, the specificity is that it is also compatible with TMAPI.
  • Finally if your programming language is not supported, or if you prefer to make your own implementation, it is possible to directly import the functions from CCAPI.dll yourself. The main functions to achieve that are LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress from the WINAPI, you can find them in a lot of languages C/C++/.net/Java, etc. 

 

The CCAPI (Windows) documentation is available here: Win documentation

The CCAPI (Others) documentation is available here: (Not yet)

Hello all! CCAPI breaks and freezes simply because webMAN plugin isn't compatible with CCAPI and there isn't enough memory for webMAN and CCAPI to run simultaneously. Here's an easy fix: 
1) Uninstall webMAN completely. Delete everything that contains 'web' in the tmp folder.
2) Install CCAPI 2.80rev3.
3) Use this modified version of webMAN. It's old and doesn't have a lot of features but it works.

Enjoy!
Hopefully Enstone and Aldo can fix this!
