    Solidworks can't find any files - what's the problem?

    Max Hagermann

      Hello Solidworks community,


      I have recently updated from SW 2017 to SW2018 and also switched to another workstation.


      Now I do have the problem, that when I open a assembly that has been created (and worked fine before) with SW2017, all the linked files within the assembly are not be found by default. I can click search file and select the correct one and its shown in the assembly. But when I save the assembly, close and reopen all files are missing again.


      The files are all in the correct location and I did reassociate the files from the options menu. Also all references are checked.


      I now switched back to SW2017 and thought the problem would be with SW2018 but now I do have the same problem.


      Does anybody have an idea what`s going on??

      I really appreciate any help - thanks!!!
