I need to save as thumbnails (like jpg or bmp or png file...?) in other directory in VBA. I seen lots of examples but in 32 bit with ThumbnailView companent.
I need to get this in Inventor VBA and 64 bit system and I do not want to install any other companent... Possible?...
Using Inventor 2013 and Win 7 64 bit...
Unfortunately in 64bit Inventor 2013 the VBA editor is running in a host process which is out-of-process against Inventor, and so you are not able to access the thumbnail(iPictureDisp) of Inventor document. You can refer to the blog below for details:
But as mentioned in the blog, you can create an application to use ApprenticeServer to access the thumbnail of Inventor document in 64bit machine. Hope this helps.
