Can't seem to locate the Inventor Material Library....under Default in Projects, the Inventor Material Library is highlighted in Red.  Anyone know where I need to browse to inorder to locate it?

Regards.

I open Inventor 2013 and am greeted with this message after accepting the Updating Appearance. I assume this is expected as the original file was created and saved in Inventor 2012.

Then when I try to apply a material and I select the silver ball I get this popping up....

Is this expected behaviour or am I missing a link to someting?

See attached for the default location of the Inventor material lib. Do you have this file on disk ?

 

Your Design Data setting for either the active project or in Application Options may also be coming in to play here. What do you have set for that ?

 

Thanks,
Chris
