I have written an application in VB6 which uses the nwcontrol. The app allows the user to open a Navisworks model. Then I have a command that will change colors of objects based on properties. This all worked in Navisworks 2010, however, when I run the command to change colors I get the unlicensed API message. My company has over 200 navisworks licenses so I know we have licenses. Some of the stuff I've read hints that I need to embed the license in the app. How would I do this or how can I get the app to run some of the actions to manipulate objects inside the navisworks model.
Any help would be appreciated
Thank you for your response. However, this didn't exactly answer my question. Point 5 in the link you refer is as follows:
5. API Not Fully Enabled
By default what the Lite, Full or Redistributable controls can do is open a model, change navigation mode and select pre-defined viewpoints. Most APIs abilities are not enabled.
When you try to access the un-enabled methods/objects, you will receive a failure:
"Navisworks Error - API Unlicensed"
How to I fully enable the control so I don't get the above message?
I forgot one more blog in the last message
It is true as indicated in this blog. You must use Integrated control to have full abilities. This means you must install Simulate/Manage. Sorry.
As in the blog I mentioned:
(2) The GUID can be found in the registry if they have been installed. e.g. searching with ‘Integrated Control’, you can get the GUID. And replace the CLSID with this one in the HTML.
<OBJECT ID="NWControl01" CLASSID="CLSID:29877E00-BEC4-4A2D-B40E-5AB27F4A916C">
<PARAM NAME="_cx" VALUE="7000">
<PARAM NAME="_cy" VALUE="7000">
<PARAM NAME="SRC" VALUE="c:\temp\gatehouse.nwd">
