Sketcher/Section window crashes (Pro/E 2001)


Sketcher/Section window crashes (Pro/E 2001)

I am trying to provide a sketcher interactively using the following
code in the function which is called when I click a custom added
menuButton named Sketcher.

int SketcherClick()
ProSection section;
ProName wname;
int windowid;
ProError status;

status = ProSection2DAlloc (§ion);
printf("\n ProSection2DAlloc status %d",status);

ProStringToWstring (wname, "demo");

status = ProSectionNameSet (section, wname);
printf("\n ProSectionNameSet status %d",status);

status = ProObjectwindowCreate(wname,PRO_2DSECTION,&windowid);
printf("\n ProObjectwindowCreate status %d",status);

status = ProWindowActivate(windowid);
printf("\n ProWindowActivate status %d",status);

return 1;

Everthing works fine here. Even a new Sketch in a new window is
opened. However when one tries to draw just one line - proe craches
regardless of the exe or dll mode.
However if one draws a rectangle or circle it works perfectly well. But as
soon as a line is drawn and middle button is pressed, proe crashes.

When proe craches the error returned is -11 i.e.PRO_TK_COMM_ERROR

I can't understand what the problem is and how to resolve it.
Please help us in this regard

Thank you
