hope someone can help me with this... I've been searching for a week or more... can't find an answer...


I just wanted to export a Feature Class to Shapefile so I can try to do a hotspot analysis...


Here is the code that I'm using and getting the error at pExportOperation = New ExportOperation




Dim pMap As IMap = Form1.AxMapControl1.ActiveView.FocusMap


Dim pFeatureLayer As IFeatureLayer = pMap.Layer(0)


'Get the target layer in the map
Dim pFeatureClass As IFeatureClass = pFeatureLayer.FeatureClass


Dim pFeatureLayerDefinition As IFeatureLayerDefinition = pFeatureLayer ' QI from the FeatureLayer
Dim a As String = pFeatureLayerDefinition.DefinitionExpression.ToString()


'Set the where clause
Dim pQueryFilter As IQueryFilter = New QueryFilter
pQueryFilter.WhereClause = a


'Get the Featureclassname from the featureclass
Dim pDataset As IDataset = pFeatureClass
Dim pInFeatureClassName As IFeatureClassName = pDataset.FullName
Dim pInDsName As IDatasetName = pInFeatureClassName


'Create Directory if doesn't exist
If Directory.Exists("C:\Kernel Density Hotspot") Then
   Directory.Delete("C:\Kernel Density Hotspot", True)
End If
Directory.CreateDirectory("C:\Kernel Density Hotspot")


'Define the output featureclass
'give it the name of the input feature class + exp
Dim pFeatureClassName As IFeatureClassName = New FeatureClassName
Dim pOutDatasetName As IDatasetName = pFeatureClassName
pOutDatasetName.Name = "Kernel_Density_Export"
Dim pWorkspaceName As IWorkspaceName = New WorkspaceName
pWorkspaceName.PathName = "C:\Kernel Density Hotspot"
pWorkspaceName.WorkspaceFactoryProgID = "esriCore.ShapefileWorkspaceFactory.1"
pOutDatasetName.WorkspaceName = pWorkspaceName


'Give the output shapefile the same props as the input dataset
pFeatureClassName.FeatureType = pFeatureClass.FeatureType
pFeatureClassName.ShapeType = pFeatureClass.ShapeType
pFeatureClassName.ShapeFieldName = pFeatureClass.ShapeFieldName


'Export selected features
Dim pExportOperation As IExportOperation = Nothing
pExportOperation = New ExportOperation

pExportOperation.ExportFeatureClass(pInDsName, pQueryFilter, Nothing, Nothing, pOutDatasetName, 0)

I have used this before in 10.2 now in 10.3 I can't


I have tried True and False Interop


Standalone system checked the binding with ProductCode.EngineOrDesktop and its good


I've tried reinstalling the SDK...


I'm using VS 2013...


I'm just out of ideas...
