Toolbox won't configure - swbrowser.mdb' is not the expected version (14.09)

Can someone guide me though how to fix this or help me revert to an earlier version?


When I bring up assemblies with toolbox fasteners their connection to the Toolbox is absent.  When I try to add a toolbox fastener I get this complaint:

Error: The database file 'C:\SolidWorks Data\lang\english\swbrowser.mdb' is not the expected version (14.09)


I looked around the forums but never found what I need to fix it.  I have the impression there is a way to look at the toolbox database, but I don't know how.


I found an error log that says:

********************  Tuesday, February 09, 2010   23:07:09  ********************

Source Database: C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks (2)\toolbox\data utilities\lang\english\updatedb.mdb

Starting update database...

Database Version: 14.05
Update Version: 14.09

(Obviously I have been avoiding dealing with this for a while.)


I am running 2010, and keep 2009 around, if that matters.   2009 is now asking me to configure Toolbox as well though it used to work just fine.  I fear I answered some question wrong when I changed to a larger hard drive, and reinstalled everything.



?mdb.SWBrowser how to do this and that is how everyone knows?   How does one even know about explainsSeems like there a a bunch of basic info on how Toolbox functions that I don't know.  Is there some super secret help file that

Any and all help welcomed.
