Cant use toolbox in an assembly

Hey guys,

I finally got to the final project of my degree, and I got the entire assembly model in Solidworks at the computer lab.

I used bolts, nuts etc. from the toolbox, and it all looks great. When I finished, I used the "pack and go" option to save all of my work.

This morning I tried to open the assembly and every part that I imported from the toolbox got a message: "the missing toolbox part ... cannot be automatically created because of a path conflict with another toolbox installation".

To insert a part from the toolbox I right-clicked it, create new part, than saved the new part in my folder with the rest of the assembly (not the automatic creation in the toolbox folder), and yet when I try to open it the program is refering to the toolbox.

How can I solve this problem (I have already replaced all of those parts with the one I want so I can work, but I dont want to do that every single time...).

Thanks for the help!
