API: how can I eliminate dialogues to run my program in batch without interaction

Hello,
I want to get in a batch program the dependencies from an assembly
with the method GetDependencies():
docName = "J:\\Company\\rade\\sld_dev\\myAss.SLDASM"
swApp = win32com.client.Dispatch("SldWorks.Application")
swMod = swApp.OpenDoc(docName, 2)
dependencies = swMod.GetDependencies(1,1)
swApp.CloseDoc(docName)
swApp.ExitApp()
This works fine with assemblies was construct in my current SolidWorks
2005 installation.
But when I open assemblies from an older installation, I get the
dialogue "The following documents will be converted when saved" (in
german: "Die folgenden Dokumente werden beim Speichern konvertiert
werden.") and I must respond to this dialogue.
How can I eliminate this dialogue to run my program in batch without
interaction?
When I want to get the dependencies from an assembly with missing/
nonconforming files I get a dialogue "Internal ID of document does not
match the internal ID saved with the referencing document. Select yes
to except or no to browse for replacement model" and I must also
respond to this dialogue.
How can I eliminate this dialogue to run my program in batch without
interaction?
Thanks for your answer, Thomas

You should note that according to API documentation, OpenDoc method is obsolete, and you should use OpenDoc6 instead. By using that method, you can use swOpenDocOptions_Silent setting to suppress all dialogs. Calling the method is a bit trickier since you have to declare variables for errors and warnings.
Hope this helps, peek at the API help for further details and examples! There is an example for opening document silently.

It seems to me that when I did some batch conversions around the beginning of the year the silent option didn't catch everything.
Thomas, can you run a SW conversion on the files first? I think that will run silently for the most part.
