After updating to SW 2018, I'm unable to GetPreviewBitmap in one of our desktop applications that uses the document manager. It is producing the following error. "Cannot create ActiveX component". I requested a 2018 new license key with
all the right privileges (swdocmgr_general, swdocmgr_previews, swdocmgr_geometry, swdocmgr_xml). I do believe everything is correct in the registry. Does anyone know why this is happening now or how to resolve? Thank you in advance.
Try reinstalling Document Manager SDK the COM object might be corrupted. Can you also ensure that your project is targeting Any CPU with prefer 32 bit option checked off. And also make sure that your DM Interop is not embedded.
