I am designing an application that will open AutoCAD documents and then print it to some printer. The application will be built on vs 2003 , .net 1.1 sp 1 AutoCAD 2006.
This is my first time so any pointers on how to do this will be very helpful to me.
I tried couple of items from web and I am getting SystemIOFileNotFound exception. when I added AutoCAD 2006 to my path my system froze completely. Here is the sample code that I am using.
Thanks a lot
I have acdbmgd.dll and acmgd.dll in my references
public class autocadtoprinter
public sub openfile()
Dim file As Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Document
file = Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.DocumentManager.Open("D:\Somefile.dwg", True)
catch exp as exception
