SW Toolbox Version Incompatibility

Hello all,

I'm having a problem with an assembly that was transfered to me from another designer, who seems to be working with a SW version of 2006 or older. I have SW 2011 sp 4. The problem is with fasteners that seem to have been created with a different version of SW toolbox. When the assembly opens on my computer, the fasteners from my toolbox are referenced, but the sizes don't make any sense - everything is too large (small holes have huge screws, nuts and washers).

 

I also can't seem to find the information about the fastener size from the source file to determine what size the fasteners should be, so I can fix this problem.

 

Is there any idea to read this information, or to somehow convert the old references to work with my version? Any help would be appreciated!

 

Thanks you in advance!
