AccessViolationException when trying to add or set custom property

Question asked by Lindsen Cruz on Apr 12, 2017

This is a C# standalone application targeting .NET 4.0 Client Framework. This used to work before with SolidWorks 2017 sp1. Currently we've upgraded to Solidworks 2017 sp2.


I get AccessViolationException specifically when I add or set custom properties using the add methods or .Set2. Getting custom property values works fine.


If it helps, this is what it does before the exception:

1. swApp.copyDocument()

2. open assembly of copied document from step 1

3. swApp.CloseDoc() original document from step 1

3. open first part of step 2

4. swPart.Extension.CustomPropertyManager[""]

5. manager.set() <- ViolationException


I also have some c# forms before running the following above. I doubt they would cause issues.
