I have updated to Solidworks 2016 but can see my templates in the vault? It tells me they are not available for write access, would I like to open the file with read-only access?
Are you using some type of PDM?
Yes but it is maintained by our sister company in USA
It sounded like that. I'm afraid I'm not familiar with PDM, but I'm sure someone else will be able to help.
There are a few settings in the PDM Admin tool that may prevent you to see them.
quick test is to sign in as Admin on your station and Get "latest version" on the folders with missing files.
if they show up now, it is a permission setting.
Thanks for the input but I don't have Admin rights.
Maybe they took away permissions to check out the templates. Which is the way it should be (at least in my opinion), unless you're an admin.
If you can see them, you should be just fine. You don't need write access in order to use them.
If you truly can't see them, did they also update the vault to 2016?
It keeps telling me they aren't in the vault and yes it was updated at the same time thanks
have you tried to get latest version?
If you can not see it after that, i'm afraid you will have to get your Admin involved.
I have thanks and no joy I've put in a Admin request
