SolidEdge AddIn in Windows 64bit with Visual Studio 2010

Hi Guys,

i experienced a strange behaviour after updating to Visual Studio 2010.

When using my SolidEdge AddIn Project under VS 2008 with .NET 3.5, i had absolut no problems with AddIn Registration.

After the update, it is absolutely not possible to register the COM - Interop AddIn.

The strange behaviour is only under 64bit OS, not under 32bit OS.

When debugging my project, the AddIn Toolbar is not visible, i have to register manually.

Trying to manually registering the AddIn fails in some way because the Solid Edge Interops can not be registered properly with 64bit Version of .NET Framework (i guess this is Version 4 issue), but the AddIn so far is registered properly.

It is visible in the toolbar and I can use everything out of it as long i do not take use of any Solid Edge Interop Methods, if I do so an Exception is thrown.

Anybody a hint how to solve this one?

Thank You in Advance


Edit: My Error, when using Interop Functionality

ErrorMessage: The file or assembly 'Interop.SolidEdgeDraft, Version =, Culture = neutral, PublicKeyToken = null' or one of its dependencies was not found. The system can not find the file specified.
