Run Studies in Batch Mode Example (VBA)

This example shows how to run studies in batch mode.

' Preconditions:
' 1. Add the SOLIDWORKS Simulation as an add-in (in SOLIDWORKS, click
'    Tools > Add-ins > SOLIDWORKS Simulation > OK).
' 2. Add the SOLIDWORKS Simulation type library as a reference (in the IDE,
'    click Tools > References > SOLIDWORKS Simulation version type library).
' 3. Ensure that the specified model exists.
' 4. Open the Immediate window.
' Postconditions:
' 1. Opens the model document.
' 2. Sets the run and mesh option for the studies in the batch.
' 3. Analyzes the studies in the batch.
' 4. Gets the result codes of the studies.
' 5. Inspect the Immediate window.
' NOTE: Because the model is used elsewhere, do not save changes.
