we have a small exe that can extract thumbnail from SolidEdge file (bmp extract).

It is working well in case of SolidEdge is installed on the computer where I use the tool.

But If I use the same tool on a computer where SolidEdge is not installed, then it dosen't work as it misses some dll, but I can't find witch one.

I see also that the thumbnail in windows explorer doesn't work for solid edge files if solid edge is not installed and may be this is the reason why my tool doesn't work.

Is anyone who can tell me what we have to do to display thumbnail on a computer where SE is not installed ?
