SW2008 Toolbox issues

We have run into a glitch in SW 2008 Toolbox (we have toolbox set to create configurations) but we have found a work around so I thought I would pass it along.

If you insert 2 toolbox parts (making derived parts) into a part, SW2008 will crash. I have been told by my VAR that this is due to SW 2008 inability to turn off the read only property of the file while it is editing or changing configurations.

We all use individual installations of toolbox here so an easy fix for us was to go into the files and uncheck the read only box. Making the files read/write fixed the problem for us.

This may not work if you use a Network Toolbox location though because only one person could access the file at a time.

Hope this saves people from thefrustration we went through.
