I am recieving an error when i try and add a footprint to the databse.
On my panel layout, i have created a footprint and wblocked the file to the network. I Then go to Panel> Icon Menu>Push Button> PB > Catalog Lookup> " I switch to DV table where i have a generic part stored>Select Generic Part> I am now inside the Footprint menu with Choice A,B, and C> In Choice C i choose 2) add entry to Misc> I then Choose Pick> I select the block and i then recive the AutoCad Message "File not found: ......" and the list of all support files
The file is located in F:\Library\AutoDesk2013\AutoCAD Electrical\AE ELECTRICAL\Libs\Panel\AB\TRMS-TERMINAL BLOCKS
If i move the file up one level, AE will find the file and work properly.
I have tried the following fixes and they have not worked
1) move Libs folder into AeData folder. Change .env to the following
WD_PNL,%WD_DIR%/Libs/Panel, panel layout symbol library base folder
also added the path to the support file search path
2) added the path to the env file under MISC alternate support path
Im not sure why, but it seems as if AE will not search in sub-folders when performing this action. Any help would be greatly appreciated
Please try to add necessary reference folders to AutoCAD options > Support File Search path options and see if it helps to resolve this issue. Seems like you have custom library locations which might not be included in the support search paths. If this doesnt resolve your problem, please let us know how you have configured your catalog / Lib etc in working environment on my email id firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank You for the reponses,
I believe that i have everything setup as doug has stated
If i add the subfolder that the file is located in to the support path, then it will work.
I currently have the folder that contains the multiple subfolders as my path
Should AE be able to find the file if it is in a subfolder of the folder that is in the support path?
Or do i have to add each subfolder to my support file path?
If i do this, is there a limit on the number of support file search paths?
Here is my Folder layout
