Unknown errorcode in COMException working with Visio files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    When I try to convert Visio files via code on sharepoint site, on the line

    app.Documents.OpenEx(documentName, (short)VisOpenSaveArgs.visOpenCopy);

    (app is InvisibleApp, documentName is correct, and I've also tried some combination of open flags)

    I catch  COMException with ErrorCode -2032463768, InnerException is null and Message "An exception occurred" (so descriptive, yep). It's obvious that I got this exception from visio.

    What this error means? And how to fix my code to solve this problem?

    In general I need to convert vsd-files stored in doc library to vwd-files and put them to another doc library. before convertion I save vsd-file on local drive in temp folder. Maybe it's a wrong way for my task

    In addition, I heard that there was the same problem using Sharepoint 2007

  • Automating Visio (Office client applications) from server side is not a stable design. Please refer to article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/257757 for more details. If it fits into your design, you can do the conversion part from a windows based application (which can automate Visio to do the conversion).
