Launch AutoCAD Session - Get from COM to .Net API?

Hello all,

I've got a C# .NET application that needs to launch AutoCAD in the background and do some processing on some dwg files.

I can launch the AutoCAD session using the COM Interop object, but from there I can't figure out how to get back over to the .NET world and access the .NET objects for that application. I've seen examples where you can convert the .NET AcadApplication object to the Interop AcadApplication object, but does anyone know of a way to go the other direction?

Thanks for your help,
Brian

I don't believe the managed ObjectARX API is remotable,
and if it isn't then you can't use it from another process.
You would need to have your managed code loaded into
AutoCAD via NETLOAD.
