|Certain applications (e.g. Microsoft Office)
support what is known as Object Linking and Embedding (OLE). Such
applications, referred to as OLE-compliant or OLE container applications,
allow you to retrieve a Version 5 document i.e. a part, a drawing or an
assembly (referred to, in an OLE context, as the OLE document server).
You can either link or embed the contents of the geometry area of a Version 5 document:
The linked or embedded document appears as an image (or, if you specify otherwise, as an icon). When the document is double-clicked, a normal Version 5 session is displayed.
|Version 5 documents may be linked or embedded
in host container documents. Linking is always allowed. Embedding is
forbidden in demo mode. Embedding of CATIA V4 models is also forbidden.
Only .CATPart, .CATProduct, .CATDrawing, .CATAnalysis and .model documents implement OLE document server.
|Version 5 supports the Microsoft /regserver
and /unregserver options for OLE. If you experience problems with OLE
features, for example, if double-clicking a document icon does not start a
session as expected:
If you have installed several levels of Version 5, running this command activates (for OLE purposes) the level of Version 5 installed in the folder in which you run the command.
