    .NET Solidworks interface issue

    Matt Bieringer

      Hello everyone.

      I am creating a standalone app and I'm using

       

      Dim swApp As ISldWorks = TryCast(GetObject("", PROG_ID), ISldWorks)

       

      to connect to Solidworks.

       

      My issue is when I open Solidworks normally I get Capture.PNGthis for my sidebar. The blue sphere will allow me to use the file browser tab to access our vault.

       

      When I use the standalone I get Capture.PNGthis for my sidebar, which has the normal File Browser icon.

       

      Is there anyway to force the connection to the vault so I get the first icon?

       

      Thanks.
