Is your Inventor setup to utilize 'desktop content', or are you using a Vault server to manage the CC libraries?

You can find this out, in the 'application options / content center tab'.

it is pulling from inventor desktop content.  when i look up that folder through my computer the only two files are "my library.idcl" and "my library.idz".  i feel like there should be more there.  thanks for the help by the way.  i appreciate the response.

You will have to install the desktop content from your Inventor DVD.
