I'm new to working with solid edge through the API and am becoming more familiar with using Visual Studio and VB as I go, however, I don't have a great deal of experience there.
Problem: Errors encountered when opening a .par file; sometimes it works, other times is doesn't. I don't have a good feel for why the error would occur inconsistently.
Here is a little bit about my system
SE references: SolidEdgeFileProperties, SolidEdgeFramework, SolidEdgeFrameworkSupport
version of MS VB 2010 Express: 10.0.30319
OS: Windows XP, 32-bit (Recently installed Service Pack 3)
Note SE installation was performed prior to upgrade to SP3
Some of my .NET components installed (not sure If I should remove some of these):
MS .NET framework 2.0 SP2
MS .NET framework 3.0 SP2
MS .NET framework 3.5 SP1
MS .NET framework 4 Client Profile
MS .NET framework 4 Extended
MS .NET framework 4 Multi-Targeting Pack
SE ST2 Version: 102.00.0504
Here is a mwe code:
Dim objApp As SolidEdgeFramework.Application = Nothing
Dim objDocs As Object
Dim objDoc As Object
objApp = GetObject(, "SolidEdge.Application")
objApp = CreateObject("SolidEdge.Application")
Console.WriteLine("Could not connect to SolidEdge.")
' ensure that application is visible; set the `Visible' property to true
objApp.Visible = True
'Access the Documents collection object.
objDocs = objApp.Documents
'Open an existing document.
objDoc = objDocs.Open("F:\hwlib\lowsidetable\floorboardunique.par")
Note that I have tried opening files located on an external drive F:, as well as, local C:
I have attached a few of the error messages.
Any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
