I am using Inventor 2010, and just gone through the install program to add in content center files. It installed 11 IDCL files and 1 IDZ file. I copied all these files to "C:\Documents and Settings\dshupin1\My Documents\inventor\Content Center Files\R2010". Now, when I try to open something from my content center, I get a "Failed to open document" error, then another error that the file is not valid for placement.
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
I was talking about when you select the "I" in the upper left corner and "Manage" then Projects, you should see this dialog.
Just make sure the CC is pointing to the correct folder where you are trying to find these files.
What Scott is showing you is where content is placed from the library when used. I think what you're asking about is where the libraries are placed. In Application Options > Content Center tab, check the location, and change it to match yours if necessary. The open the project editor and click the drop-down menu in the lower right corner just above the Done button, then click the Configure Content Center button (the only one in the list...?). This will allow you to choose which libraries you want available to this project.
