I have an applicatioin that has been running for sometime that opens a SolidWorks File and then does a save-as to a PDF. This runs without issue. Recently I changed the open string to open as a "Quickview" drawing. The purpose of this was to remove the need to have all model and assembly support copied to same location as draiwng.
With Quickview there is no Save-As to PDF but I can plot to an Adobe Printer to get the desired results.
Not ALL SolidWorks drawings are able to be opened in a Quickview Mode. I am unable to detemine why some drawings work and others do not. What I end up doing it trapping the error, which is = 1 (general error), and then open the drawing again with full model support. This sort of defeats my project of removing all model support.
Here is the string I am using to open the drawing:
