Can anyone please provide me with step by step instruction to upgrading my toolbox on sw2018. Thanks in anticipation.
Can anyone answer Alan's question? I have the same problem. Thanks!
Here's what I got from my VAR:
Run the utility UpdateBrowserDatabase.exe as an administrator, which can be found at C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\Toolbox\data utilities
Click the ... to the right of the Database to Update field and browse to the swbrowser.sldedb location (By default: C:\SOLIDWORKS Data\lang\english\swbrowser.sldedb)
The Updating Database should point to the directory with the updatedb.sldedb file (Default: C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\toolbox\data utilities\lang\english\updatedb.sldedb).
Press Update to update the swbrowser.sldedb to the latest version.
I don't know if you have it or not but if your Toolbox is within PDM there are some additional steps to take to manually update it beyond running the "UpdateBrowserDatabase.EXE". This document details a PDM managed Toolbox upgrade in case you need it (GoEngineer - SOLIDWORKS/PDM: Toolbox Upgrade).
