I try to use the toolbox but it wont allow me it says failed to get writable documents
Right click on the toolbox folder and make sure it is not read only.
Close SW, rename the ToolboxFiles.index file (found in the browser folder) to ToolboxFiles_Old.index. Start SW and check.
Please make sure the you have permissions to read and write to complete toolbox location.
hmmm my toolbox is located her
I did try it but it didin't work maybe this is the problem i cannot remove the read only on the toolbox folder
Click on security tab and make sure you've full control
Yap that what i did but it wont allow me this massage pop up
Im the owner of this machine im the only one using it
Disable UAC in the control panel and try again.
Thankyou Deepak Guptai made to work the way i want i just need to select the name of my laptop and tick the full control from the security tab and follow this: rename the ToolboxFiles.index file (found in the browser folder) to ToolboxFiles_Old.index. Start SW and check.
Toolbox is ok, but it is much easier creating your own product library.. I think it is pretty stable today, from what I hear, but there was an update a few years ago that really messed things up and I vowed then I'll never ever use it again. Might eat my words someday, but create a part with a design table and it works very similar to the Toolbox and you can use your own custom properties instead of spending a lot of time changing the SW Toolbox Custom Properties...
Yap i agree with you John i have also a custom library but that is for my commercial SW, but i was recently invited as a part time SW instructor so i use this for my student.
