My Libraries and Symbol manager and Electrical Component wizard not working well

Am not a tech guy and my solidworks electrical 15 came with a lot of troubles that is frustrating me to the core. I would appreciate if you can help me out.

First, the library that unarchives after fresh installation that should have over 5000 manufacturer parts just have 60 and also incomplete symbols etc.

Second, I can't create a new symbol using the new symbol command in symbol manager, it just disappears and after filtering/searching it still isn't there. But I can create symbol by duplicating an existing one.

Third, after using the "solidworks cabinet layout" command under "process" to create the 3D assembly of the line diagram using any manufacturer part. During routing the error "invalid connection point" and "missing connection point" shows, whereas these points are right there looking at me.

Four, when I try creating an electrical component, after defining the left, right, top, and bottom faces and creating the mate references and creating point by reference. After choosing the manufacturer part and terminal number with corresponding sketch point, it still doesn't create these connection points even though it doesn't show any errors.

Five, the usual blue icon that turns green on successful connection point creation doesn't even appear when am trying to create an electrical component.

Thanks for reading my long list of problems. Please I would appreciate any form of help.
