Recently for no reason, i am unable to use SldWorks.OpenDoc6 method to load my solidworks files. Below is a snap shot of the part of the code which i used to open the solidworks file. I have even cut and paste the following code and paste into a fresh new macro but it still give me the same error massage "External component has thrown an exception."


Dimfile As String

Dim mdl As ModelDoc2

Dim fileerror As Long

Dim filewarning As Long


file = 'The full location of my file including extension.



     mdl = swApp.OpenDoc6(file, swDocumentTypes_e.swDocPART, swOpenDocOptions_e.swOpenDocOptions_ReadOnly, "", fileerror, filewarning)


Catch ex As Exception




End Try


Hope some one out there can help me on this.
