This method only supports SolidWorks-supplied textures.


Call ITexture::MaterialName to get the value for FileNameIn before calling this method. ITexture::MaterialName  returns an abbreviated path and the name of the texture as it appears in the Texture PropertyManager. For example, if ITexture::MaterialName returns <SystemTexture>\images\textures\plastic\brushed\bred.jpg, then ITexture::GetSystemTextureName returns Plastic\Brushed\Red.
