I downloaded SW2017 SP2 after downloading SW2016 SP5 and now my hole wizard in 2016 will not open and errors out. Any suggestions on a fix?
Yes, there is a specific folder. It is located here:
Your toolbox also controls your hole wizard.
Either change this link to go to your current toolbox, or move your toolbox to the location listed here.
If your 2017 installation was pointed to the Hole Wizard/Toolbox database for 2016 then that database was updated to work with SolidWorks 2017. Version 2016 needs its own database. Do you have another machine you can rob the 2016 database off of?
Yes i can grab it off of one of the other designers. One of the other guys sent the hole wizard database to me and i put in the solidworks data folder, but still had no effect. Is there a specific folder that it needs to go under and be linked to?
That did the trick!
