File reference nightmare...

Question asked by Anthony Macke on Apr 16, 2015

So we have this assembly, every single file in the assembly is saved to a network drive. There are no locally saved parts to anyone's C: drive. (I have personally triple checked this)

If I open the assembly, I get a bunch of parts Solidworks can't find.

If the project engineer opens it everything comes in perfect!

I have went through on my machine and manually located all the missing parts, pointing them to the correct network drive location, then saved the assembly.

Close it and open it again, same thing, tons of missing parts.

I have opened the assembly on numerous other computers in our department and have gotten both results. Some peoples loads fine others are like mine and cant find the parts.

 

I don't get it.

 

Any insight would be much appreciated
