i have upgraded from Plant 3D 2012 to 2013 and i am in the process of migrating my specs and catalogs. when doing so i get this pop up message from the Spec Editor...see attached...what files/folders is the program looking for? i don't want to loose any information as i put a lot of time into the specs and catalogs but have no idea where to "point" it too or if continuing without supporting content will make a difference.

If you create custom parts, the program stores them in the catalog folder, you may have to move the files manually.


For example, in my 2012 folder a CatalogSupportFolders was created which stored custom parts.
