During testing of our addin, which needs custom materials.sldmat, we are finding that certain installation of SolidWorks do not have this database installed.
I know that sometimes, especially after upgrades, paths to the custom materials db as well as document templates need to be reassigned.
But the db is not on the machine, this file should be recreated by SW after deletion and that is not happening either.
Does anyone know if anything needs to be custom configured during installation of SW in order for the custom materials db to be created?
Also for the document templates (assembly, part) to be assigned?
in my experience, that db only gets created when SW has a use for it. i.e. when you open a part with a material defined that is not in an existing db in the path set in the options.
