WWGM (client) toolkit API to just launch the authoring application (CATIA) without opening a document

Dear PTC support,

Currently there is no way to launch CATIA using WWGM toolkit API.

Simple use case would be to call CAA function from WWGM-client.

But if CATIA is not opened, it won't be possible!.

So think WWGM toolkit should provide API to lunach CATIA without opening any document.

Let me know if you require more details.

Thanks,

Nathaniel

Hi Nathaniel,

why is it not sufficient to call CreateProcess() from your C++ program to start CNEXT.exe? Using CNEXT.exe you could also run a macro (*.CATScript or *.CATVBA) in batch mode without opening full CATIA UI (Depending on your CATIA code / CAA function).

Best regards,

Ruediger Scholz
