Why does SW add the string "copy of" to parts made virtual?
How come I can't rename some virtual parts and get an error "Invalid virtual name, name too long or bad characters".
I found the answer to my own question and wanted to post the answer. Actually Jeff Jensen from GoEngineer figured out the error, "Invalid virtual name, name too lone....".
Turns out I was using ! in the top level assembly to force the name to the top of a file listing. Virtual parts & virtual assemblies do not like this character. Beware of the characters used to name components in virtual parts & assemblies as they do not follow file naming conventions.
From Microsoft's web site for file naming:
You can't use any of the following characters in a file name: \ / ? : * " > < |
