Hi,

 

I was trying to retrieve a list of the currently open drawings before running a batch script in VB .Net 2008 so that the program can check the selected file listto update against whats open already to make sure that the file isnt read only.

 

I can seem to figure it out... any help would be great thanks.

what tkarapita says is true. i want to add an advice for your future affords. if you are dealing with the documents  i mean not a single document , mark your command as CommandFlags.Session so that it runs in application context and dont forget the lock the document you are dealing with.
