Content Center parts don't show in part-generators

For some reason when I start either the bolted connection generator or the shaft generator, the content center parts don't show up if I select "modify" to change the parts. For example: I wanted to create an axle with a retaining-ring-groove. I created the axle, and under Features I selected Retaining Ring.

Then a dialog shows up with some standard dimensions, and on the right under "Position" it says "ASME B 27.7M". When I click here, an empty dialogbox shows with filter "All" activated.Shaft_Generator_Contentcenter_Empty.png

It should show all retaining rings available in the content center. The strange thing however is that when I exit this function and start the ordinary "Place from Content Center" command, I can see all retaining rings that are available (see pictures).

The same thing occurs when using the bolted connection generator. What's wrong and, more important, how can I solve this problem?

 

Thanks in advance for your tips and solutions.

I suppose you retrieve the Content Center parts from a Vault Server.

 

If this is the case, there is an hot fix for the Vault Server that solves the problem, as explained in the blog post below.
