When I move a large assembly from my work machine to my laptop and
open it all the fasteners change to the largest possible size. The
setup, version of SW (2004 sp2.1) and directory paths are identical.
All the parts with issues are from the Toolbox.
When I open the assembly I get a dialog box with the following message
"The following component configurations could not be found", and a
list of all the fasteners. I cannot replace any fasteners -- the
"Edit Toolbox Definition" is grayed out. I can add fasteners from
the toolbox on the laptop, and the file ->open -> show references
shows they have the same path as the ones that won't load.
SW Tech support thinks I have a path permission or access problem with
the Toolbox directory under the SW install directory -- I don't.
This works both ways -- assemblies created on the laptop are not
loadable on the desktop.
I have also looked at the "create copy" flag in the toolbox browser
options dialog box -- this doesn't seem to be what I want, and I would
have to keep changing the directory to keep copies in as I work on
Any bright ideas ??
