If you are closing the only document in the SOLIDWORKS session and the SOLIDWORKS session is a background session, then calling ISldWorks::CloseDoc or this method results in the SOLIDWORKS session closing.

You can create a background SOLIDWORKS session when the starting a SOLIDWORKS session in your application and the session is controlled by the user (ISldWorks::UserControl set to false). To keep the SOLIDWORKS session open, set ISldWorks::UserControl to true, which makes the session visible, or you can close your documents at the end of your application's execution.
