FEA files

When I try and open a part I get all kinds of Resolve Link dialog boxes looking for files that were created with the FEA package last time the part was saved.  Unfortunately, those files no longer exist and now I would like to open the file without it looking for those files with the fins,fsat, ftes, fwiz, fx_t, fmsh, fres extensions.  Is there a way I can remove the association to those files?

Most likely the folder that holds the FEA data was deleted. You should be able to open the model, use the Skip-All command to facilitate the opening of the model. Then enter into the FEA Environment, then delete the Simulation from the browser. You should be able to RMB click on the Simulation and select "Delete".


This should then remove all links to the FEA folder and FEA files.

In the Ribbon go to the Tools tab, then go to the Options area. There you will see a "Links" command. Here you might be able to remove the references you are seeing.
