Our company recently upgraded from SW 2011 to SW 2014. We have our Toolbox set up on the server (multi-user setup). How do we get Toolbox to work with our new Solidworks 2014 version? What is the process? Thanks in advance..
When doing your install it should have asked you to the location where you want to install the toolbox. If you didn't give it the location to an existing one it should have created a new one for you ( I think default is C:\SolidWorks Data\). If you did point it to an existing one then it should have updated that one.
Since you have a multi-user setup on a network drive, run the install and point the toolbox folder to this location, it will then update it. Or just copy one of the default installs to your network location and then change the tools
One of our I.T. staff did the upgrades so I don't know that the Toolbox location was specified at install.
If I copy a default Toolbox folder to the server, what do you mean by "changing the tools?" (Please forgive me for I am a newbie at this Toolbox stuff).
Sorry, something happened to the rest of my sentence above. What I was sayingng is copy the toolbox to your network location then change the toolbox folder file location to point to it (Under tools ---> Options ----> Hole Wizard / Toolbox).
Did they install Solidworks on your local hard drive? Check the file path C:\SolidWorks Data\ or look for a SolidWorks Data folder on your hard drive, this will be your toolbox install. Chances are that it's installed locally with your Solidworks install, I believe you have to uncheck the toolbox install when going though the install procedure to get it to not install, assuming you have Soliidworks Premium or professional.
Toolbox changed substantially in 2012. You should search in the Customer Portal for a solution.
