Submit your product in accordance with the App Submission Process. You will need to submit all of your product files in a single ZIP file ―with a ZIP file extension (no self-extracting executables please).
Autodesk will test and review your submission for suitability to be included in Autodesk Exchange Apps; if your submission is accepted, Autodesk will create the final “package file” that customers will download from Autodesk Exchange Apps and contact you to review the final package file.
The “package file” is created to enable users to have an easier, more delightful experience with your product from first install through long-term use.
