it is a VBA application for Macros
if swvbaserver.exe*32 is not ran then
- VBA(.swp) will not run
- C# marcos (csproj) will still run
- VB Macro(vbproj) will still run
- Add-in/Add-ons will Still run
i'm not sure if there are other thing that it affects but with swvbaserver.exe*32 sw is for solidworks Visual Basic for Applications
so i'm think that it is only for VBA and that it.
if you have marcos that are the .swp you can upgrade them the the new version vbproj
Thank you for your reply.
I do not manage our Solidworks deployment so unfortunately I am not very knowledgable about Solidworks, but if I wanted to identify if there are VBA based macros that were at play is there a way that I can identify where they are or can I see them anywhere?
So far it seems that only one user is experiencing this problem with the swvbaserver.exe*32 and the error message that gets generated.
There must be some macro that is running that is causing the error message that is being received.
Macros can be create and save on hard drives so it would be hard to find out you has and run them without ask everone
also I found this by Keith Rice http://http://www.cadsharp.com/blog/solidworks-macro-compatible-64-vba7/
that is somthing you need to read about this issue
Thanks for the link Jacob and thanks for the information!
I have spoken with the user and as it turns out he does run a few macros that are VBA based.
Not entirely sure when it is requesting admin privileges though.
We have other users running macros and their Solidworks doesn't appear to prompt.
Perhaps this users has a macro that does something inside the registry, or attempts to write a file to a directory they do not have access to.
I will have to investigate further. At least now I know what the process does!
swvbaserver.exe is also used to drive equation updates involving IEquationMgr. However I am not certain whether this is specific to VBA language only or if it affects all languages.
Thanks for the reply!
Is the IEquationMgr apart of Solidworks by default or is it a module that can be added on?
I am still curious to as why swvbaserver.exe is requesting admin privileges.
