  • What do you mean by "not working"?  Can you create the COM object?  What error do you get?

  • Hi Open other Application(Plantsimulation), 

    Thank you for posting here.

    Could you provide more details about the exception or error with which line of the code thrown the exception or errors and some code about psi.LoadModel()? It will help us to analyze your problem and make a test.

    Besides, you can use Process.Start method to open an application.  

    We are waiting for your update.

    Best Regards,
