C# macro doesn't work anymore

Hi all,


So I wrote up this macro last year to convert bulk drawings into PDFs and since upgrading to 2015 it doesn't work. Any chance someone could have a quick look and tell me whats wrong with it or a better way to do this? It's only a tiny bit of code. It doesn't get an error or anything I run it and it just doesn't do anything.





using SolidWorks.Interop.sldworks;
using SolidWorks.Interop.swconst;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
using System;
using System.IO;

namespace PDF.csproj
    public partial class SolidWorksMacro

        public void Main()
            string pdfPath;
            string Path = "C:\\Solidworks\\05-Portable Safety Barriers\\13-T Lok Screen 5.4m";
            string txtPath = Path + "\\UpdatedPDFs.txt";
            //string Date = DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString();
            string[] drwPaths = System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(Path, "*.SLDDRW", SearchOption.AllDirectories);
            foreach (string s in drwPaths)
                if (!s.Contains("~$"))
                    ModelDoc2 swDoc = null;
                    int longstatus = 0;
                    int longwarnings = 0;
                    pdfPath = s;
                    pdfPath = pdfPath.Replace("Drawings", "PDFs").Replace("SLDDRW", "PDF");
                    (new FileInfo(pdfPath)).Directory.Create();
                    swDoc = ((ModelDoc2)(swApp.OpenDoc6(s, 3, 1, "", ref longstatus, ref longwarnings)));
                    longstatus = swDoc.SaveAs3(pdfPath, 0, 0);
                    swDoc = null;
            //System.IO.File.WriteAllText(txtPath, Date);

        /// <summary>
