Unable to query Mold Bases in PDS Ultimate 2013

Having just installed PDS Ultimate 2013 on a Vista-64 machine, I notice while viewing the Wiki files, that the installation installed only a Partial Library of Metric Mold Bases.  I wish to install ALL Mold Bases, i.e. Imperial, Metric and Meusburger.  I followed instruction per "Mold Design Desktop content Libraries for Autodesk Inventor Professional 2012".

 

I deleted the existing partial metric idcl file and moved the Imperial.idcl, metric.idcl and meusberger.idcl file into the content center libraries folder.  The replacement files are named AI_2012 Inventor Mold Imperial, AI_2012 Inventor Mold Metric and AI_2012 Inventor Muesburger.idcl.  All three files are dated 2/8/2011.

 

Now, am I no longer able to query for ANY mold base or associated parts whatsoever! :smileymad:

 

How do I go about installing the complete set of Mold Bases and get Moldfow to make queries to all three Mold Base Libraries?

Hello Jim,

 

We still provided three sub mold libraries for 2013, so please download the latest 2013 mold libraries from the following link:

Thanks Steven for the quick reply.  i found the same myself when serching for updates and Service Packs for inventor 2013 Professional.

 

I wasn't expecting to see any updates or other for PDS 2013 Ultimate or Inventor 2013 Professional just quite yet!
