can anyone please tell me why I get this message?
I gave up !
I will re-install solidworks.
Did you recently updated any service pack for SW2010.
I have sw.2011 premium sp 3.0.
and I don't think any service packs have been installed on this machine.
Looks like toolbox file has not been updated. Can you re run the installation file and update the toolbox.
Also read this post https://forum.solidworks.com/message/143725#143725 and try to run UpdateBrowserData.exe as suggested by Tom. But make sure that you backup your data.
I am experiencing the same message.
I have both SW 2011 SP5 and SW2012 SP1 installed on the same work station.
Toolbox works fine in SW2012, won't open in SW2011 and this is where I see the message.
Is their a way to force SW2011 to use the updated database file (15.02)?
Any answers would be appreciated.
SW2011 SP4 Toolbox version is 14.18
I think 15.02 is for SW2012 SP1
Did you install both Toolboxes in the same folder?
There should be two different versions on your machine.
Can you please check?
Yes, John, there are two different folders due to the separate installations.
As I stated above, toolbox works in SW2012 but not in SW2011.
When I try to configure the toolbox for SW2011 SP5 it doesn't seem to save any changes, and no hardware is listed, I just get the
message popping up for any hardware that happens to be in the current model.
The dates of the two mdb files are different, SW2011 has a date of 11/08/10.
SW2012 has a date of 20/10/11.
How can you tell which version is associated with each mdb file?
Is there a method for pointing to a specific file?
Can you please check one more thing?
Go to options in SW 2011 and make sure you specify the correct toolbox folder for that version
See this picture
I found that both versions were set to view from the same folder.
I have them looking at the correct folders now, and I don't get the message in SW2011 anymore.
However, I can not get the toolbox to configure in SW2011, it was configured prior to the installation of SW2012.
When I attempt to configure the toolbox it seems to be saving the settings, but reverts back to the 'configure toolbox' state.
I'm thinking that there is still some conflict between the two installations.
Thanks for your help.
