FolderObj.AddFile and IEdmEnumeratorVariable and not working with PDF files

Has anyone else encountered problems in PDM Professional 2016, SP1, when trying to add PDF files to a vault or update their variables? The code I use worked fine in 2015, SP3. The problem does not appear to be an API error... When I execute the API call for FolderObj.AddFile or IEdmEnumeratorVariable a window appears that says "Please wait while Windows configures SolidWorks PDM" and then a separate windows appears saying "Error 2709. The specified Component name ('{96C9D8BC-A40C-45F4-919C-E73D649B93E3}') not found in Component table" (see attached/below image). Strange thing is the IEdmEnumeratorVariable call does produce the values I expect, so why the error?


The FolderObj.AddFile works partially. The file is copied to the vault folder but not added.
