SW16 Hole Callout Error message

So I just switched to SW 2016, but instead of overwriting SW 2015 I now have both versions on the same computer.

What a pain! None of my file locations came in correctly! SW16 calls out all of the SW15 file locations!!

I thought selecting the 'don't keep any of my settings' during install would have helped. Nope most of my settings were there?!?!

 

So I have this error message when I add hole callouts:

"Error: The database file 'C:\SOLIDWORKS Data\lang english\swbrowser.sldedb' is not the expected version (19.00)"

But when I look for the Hole Callout Format File it is called out in a completely different place. So... not the right thing to change.

[Which is wrong as the SW16 files are in a second folder C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS (2)... which is a whole different problem.]

Where should I look for this swbrowser.sldedb file to update the location??
