Autodesk SymBBAuto 3.0 Type Library

Have a big problem with Autocad Mechanical 2011 VBA.

I get a Runtime error (Problem in  loading application.)

Here is the code:

 

Dim symbb As McadSymbolBBMgr

Set symbb = Thisdrawing.Application.GetInterfaceObject("SymBBAuto.McadSymbolBBMgr")

 

The SymBBAuto fails to load. Has anyone have the same problem?

Looking for any comments and/or fixes on this problem in Autodesk SymBBAuto 3.0 Type Library.

Yes, I've solved my problem, but unfortunately I don't remember how and I'm not able to find something about that in my notes.

 

But in my final code, I'm using :

 

Dim symMgr As New McadSymbolBBMgr



instead of :

 

Dim symbb As McadSymbolBBMgr

Set symbb = Thisdrawing.Application.GetInterfaceObject("SymBBAuto.McadSymbolBBMgr")

 

I'm using Interop.SymBBAuto 3.0 with Embed Interop Types at true and Isolate at false.

 

Also if you want to run your app on x86 and x64, you have to change the guid of the reference in your .vbproj file :

 

{71477CDD-CA02-4842-98C7-7141520E7D70} for x64

 

and

 

{4A193255-4AC6-4E04-9DE7-B041C5B216D4} for x86

 

It is a misery, as always with COM...

hi FRFR1426

 

Many thanks for your tip.

 

I tried also the tip from Li Fei and it worked very well on ACADM 2013 ! But some other conversions were needed, now we are able to migrate.
