ReadDwgFile fatal error Map3d 2014

Hi,

 

I'm trying to open a file in vb.net to read some of the xrefs within it, and I have narrowed down the fatal error that is being generated by the following code.   I have tried both of the differences I have listed below and both produce a fatal error when the ReadDwgFile is envoked.  Can someone tell me why that may be happening?

 

 Dim myDB As New Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.Database
        myDB.ReadDwgFile(dwgfile, FileOpenMode.OpenForReadAndWriteNoShare, False, "")

 

Or this:

 Dim myDB As New Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.Database
        myDB.ReadDwgFile(dwgfile, IO.FileShare.ReadWrite, True, "")

 

Thanks

I solved my issue thanks to this post here

 

I'm no pro at the new .Net api so I'm still muddling my way around.  however, the issue appears to be how I was creating the db.   The change I made is shown below which has solved my issue:

 

Dim myDB As New Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.Database(False, True)       

 

myDB.ReadDwgFile(dwgfile, FileShare.ReadWrite, False, String.Empty)
