Happy New Year!

 

If you don't want the preview window to appear, you don't want the parameters dialog to appear, then the only functionality left is the copying of the file that you want to place.

You could do that using Windows API or e.g. the ThisApplication.FileManager object

 

Then you could just start the component placement command ("Place") of Inventor with the copied part/assembly like shown in this devblog post: http://adndevblog.typepad.com/manufacturing/2013/01/provide-command-parameters-using-postprivateeven...

 

In iLogic it would look like this:

Dim cm As CommandManager
cm = ThisApplication.CommandManager
    
cm.PostPrivateEvent(
	PrivateEventTypeEnum.kFileNameEvent, 
	"C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\Inventor\TempProject\part - copy.ipt")

Dim cd As ControlDefinition
cd = cm.ControlDefinitions("AssemblyPlaceComponentCmd")

cd.Execute

I hope this helps.
