    ISwDMConfigurationMgrPtr GetConfigurationNames exception

    Dan Peacock



      Background: I'm using the SolidWorks API from C++ to extract Parasolid parts from SolidWorks files.  Everything seems to work fine with a large number of parts, but ...


      On one particular sldprt file I get an exception when calling GetConfigurationNames.  After doing some digging I found that GetActiveConfigurationName returns an empty string and GetConfigurationCount returns -1.


      Apparently when loading this particular file into SolidWorks (on a different PC) you are immediately presented with options to find features - could that be related to the problems I'm seeing?


      Is there something different I can / should be doing?
