OpenDoc7 freezes Visual Studio and SWX VB.NET

Question asked by Norbert Gal on Dec 1, 2017


I have a standalone application in VB.NET.

The application is running continuously.

In the application there is a gridview with filenames, and the user can open the file from this grid.

I use this code below to open files in a currently running SWX session.


My problem is that, sometimes (not on every open) the code "stuck" the at the bold underlined line after the file opened, and I cant figure out why?
There is no error message in VS or SWX, but both of them freezes.

If I stops the code running in VS, I can I can use SWX further.


Dim config As String = "...."

Dim path As String = "...."


Dim swDocSpec As SldWorks.DocumentSpecification = swApp.GetOpenDocSpec(path)

swDocSpec.Silent = True

swDocSpec.ConfigurationName = config


Dim openedDoc As SldWorks.ModelDoc2 = swApp.OpenDoc7(swDocSpec)
