ArcGIS Pro Unable to load Feature datset into Map

In a C# Add-In I can add a SDE style feature class to my map with the following code, this fails when attempting to load a FC contained in a Feature Dataset.


case "SDEFeature":

uri= new Uri(theFullPath.Replace(theSeperator,@"\"));

t = QueuedTask.Run(() =>




var x = LayerFactory.Instance.CreateLayer(uri, mapView.Map, 0, theShortName);


catch (Exception eX)


MessageBox.Show("Unable to load the selected dataset. " + eX.Message.ToString(), "Data Load Problem", MessageBoxButtons.OK);




In the above example theSeperator used in the source is "|".


When using a feature dataset it returns "Unable to load the selected dataset. Failed to create layer from W:\HQsdePoliticalAdminBoundariesP.sde\PoliticalAminBoundaries.DBO.CadastrialFWCountyBndr."


Question, is there a difference when specifying a Feature Class vs. Feature Dataset when using the layer factor? Should I be using a different factory?
