Save As

I would like to use Volo View Express to visualize file .dwg and save
them as .wmf, in an application developed with Visual Basic 5.0.

I am able to do the conversion dwg, wmf using ShowDialogSaveAs
of Volo View Express.

1) Does Volo View Express allow to do the conversion dwg, wmf passing
to it the name of the wmf file, without showing the window of dialog SaveAs?
2) Does Volo View Express allow to select the area of the visualized
dwg for a conversion in wmf?

If the problems 1) and 2) cannot be solved with Volo View Express,
is it possible to solve them with Volo View?

I've looked a lot into the WMF-capabilies of VVE and:
1) Not that I have found
2) Not that I have found. This one is also very unlikely as VVE does not
in any way allow you to select entities

As far as I have found in the latest beta of Volo View: It does not allow
you at all to save the drawing as WMF. Only the markup can be saved as
WMF, obviously of no use to you.

I don't know what you're requirements are exactly but if your only goal
is a 'free tools' conversion of DWG to DWG you might want to look into
IntelliCAD.
