I have couple of custom tabs for ACT 2012 database. The dll's get generated create just fine but tabs don't appear when ACT is loaded. There are no errors. I have verified they are in plugins folder. Has anyone seen issue like this? Or any pointers of what issue could be.
Here is the version info of ACT - Sage ACT! Premium 2012 Version 188.8.131.52, Hot Fix 4

Is the plugin failing to load? You can verify this by seeing if the name of the assembly is being added to %appdata%/Act/Act Data/DependentDlls.xml.
With the method that Jim mentions above I was able to add a tab in versions 14 and 15. What version assemblies is your application referencing?

If it's being added to DependentDlls.xml it is failing to load it for some reason. Delete the file and restart Act, it'll recreate itself.
If you're creating a plugin the version of .Net you're building against isn't important like it would be if you were developing a framework application.
