I need help on the topic as follows, and nobody replies. Maybe i am at the wrong place.
At least tell me where can i get an answer. Thanks.
I tried to add some manufacturers to the default_cat of autocad lectrical 2013.
i followed the instructions to do it by the windows 7 control panel.
When i get the Autocad screen, the manufacturers are all there. AB and ABB are checked while all others are not. I select a couple of manufacturers to add, then click next to update.
It takes a couple of minutes for Autocad to update. Then it finishes and everything looks normal,
except that the default_cat still has AB and ABB only.
How can i solve this problem ? Please help.
I am still learning however I understood the only wany to enter data into the Default CAT file was via the edit componant OR using MS Access.
Using the Electrical becareful whey you are editing as the OK will updated the part and default cat while the Close button closes and updates the the default cat only.
I do not have MS ACCESS.
If I understand your problem.
Try installing the new service pack for 2013 and then try adding the manufacturers again.
There have been similar problems to yours and ACAD were working on it. The service pack may fix the problem.
Try Installing on a second machine (even in trial mode) and Copy over the Completed Database on a memory stick.
It could be a user permissions issue, or it could be installing to a different path then you originally selected.
