I just started working remotely at my company. I'm on a VPN into the company server, and can access files just fine.
The problem I'm having is when I open assemblies. Solidworks isn't automatically opening any files, even if they're in the same directory as the assembly.
Solidworks knows where all the files are, because when I click "Browse for File", it takes me to where the file is and I just have to click Open.
I don't have this problem when I remote into my on-site workstation and open the files there.
Here's what my External References settings look like:
And here's my File Locations:
Solidworks doesn't seem to care if the files are in those folders, it still doesn't automatically open them.
