CADOverlay .NET

What steps do you need to take to ensure functionality with CADOverlay in .NET


I've reference in the COM library "Interop.CADOverlay" but calls to methods such as:


var imgFileName = new AecCoImageInfo();


....code here




Crashes CAD: Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.


How do you ensure the correct arx is loaded?


I also have similar issues when try to access the CADOverlay interface via lisp:


(vlax-invoke-method (vlax-get-acad-object) 'GetInterfaceObject "CADOverlay.AecImageObjectList")


Error: Automation Error. Problem in loading application.


Raster Design is installed and I've manually tried loading every ARX in the installation directory but still no joy?  


Please can you advise

I am sorry to tell that Raster Design COM API has been broken for some releases.

However, we fix it this year.

So, please wait for the new release of RD and try on that one to see if your problem is gone.

Sorry and thanks!
