This topic provides you with quick access to the enhancements in SOLIDWORKS Simulation API 2022.

Service Pack 1
New method and property

ICWContactComponent interface

ICWMultipleComponentContactsEditManager interface


Service Pack 0

This release continues comprehensive changes begun in SOLIDWORKS Simulation API 2021 SP04. Certain methods and properties now require VARIANT_BOOL parameters and values. (VARIANT_TRUE = -1, VARIANT_FALSE = 0). You can run the sample code from previous releases in this release, but you will first need to replace the properties and methods in those examples with the properties and methods that use VARIANT_BOOLs. Similarly, to work with this release your applications will need to be modified to use the new properties and methods that use VARIANT_BOOLs. See the New methods and properties section below.
