Solution! Working with Multiple Solidwoks Intances

Question asked by Mike Dejanovic on Mar 2, 2015

Hello all,


Here is a topic that comes up every now and then: How to direct programs to run 

inside of a specific SolidWorks (SW) instance? Anyone that was dealing with

running custom programs with multiple instances of a host program (SW in this

case) knows how frustrating it can be!


This issue of running programs, add-ins, macros, inside specific instance

of SW was on my plate for a long time, finally I got it working, the way I wanted! 

I've seen (on the web) many attempts to do this, but I could not find a solution

that actually worked, so I coded my own!


Is there any interest in such solution for/in your projects?, so, would it be

worth spending more time to develop a robust app with error handling and the rest?
