I am trying to develop an application in Visual Basic.
I knew the Autodesk Dwg Viewer and AutoCad2005 use the same viewing engine.
Actually, Reference menu of Visual Basic Project show autocad2005 type libraries(acax 16eun.tlb).
but I can't control dwg viewer.
For Example, If I run the following source code, that It occur "Run-time error : Active component can't create object."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dim Acadapp as AcadApplication
Private Sub Form_Load()

Set Acadapp = CreateObject("AutoCad.Application.16")

End Sub
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Doesn't control ActiveX control included in Dwg viewer ?
Please Answer me.

The DWG viewer is not designed to be an ActiveX Control.

Exactly. DWF Composer is the ActiveX Control. The DWG Viewer should primarily be used to generate a DWF. Some people just can't let go of using the native DWG. :-) "John Schmier (Autodesk)" wrote in message news:40e09e79$1_2@newsprd01... > The DWG viewer is not designed to be an ActiveX Control. > > > "toughty" wrote in message > news:3853888.1088398352284.JavaMail.jive@jiveforum2... > > I am trying to develop an application in Visual Basic. > > I knew the Autodesk Dwg Viewer and AutoCad2005 use the same viewing > engine.
