create Buzzsaw object

I was trying to write a simple lisp routine to open the Buzzsaw app. Something like (vlax-get-or-create-object "projectpoint.application"). This doesn't work, does anyone know the correct app name to use?

I know how to access the session and scripting for programmatically accessing files/folders/projects, etc, but I just want a simple program to open the Buzzsaw GUI only, just as if the user double clicked on the Buzzsaw desktop shortcut.

John Schmier wrote an article about invoking the DWF Viewer from AutoCAD:

Can you just change

C:\\Program Files\\Autodesk\\Autodesk DWF Viewer\\DWFViewer.exe

to

"C:\\Program Files\\ProjectPoint-7\\ProjectPoint.exe"

and that will work?

thanks, that's what I was thinking about. I just wasn't sure if there was a better way to do it.
