Visual Studio COM References Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good morning,

    I'm currently developing tools for CATIA Using Visual Studio 2013 and 2017, but these tools are not created for the same versions of CATIA.

    Say I have CATIA R28 Installed and its what I use to develop the tools, however some of them are to be used on R27, for which I have the libraries on a folder in my computer and I import these libraries from such location on those projects.

    The problem is that they would always build/publish with the System Libraries (R28), causing the tool to crash as soon as it uses any CATIA function. How can I have the application use the libraries I selected from the folder instead of the system ones effectively?

  • Hi Mebiza,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    According to your description, I suppose this issue is more about CATIA and our forum is to discuss the Visual Studio IDE issue. So I suggest you could redirect to Stack Overflow tagged catia to seek for a more professional help.

    In addition, you could have a look at the similar issue:
