Using Art cam Insignia Mill wizzard for the first time and I dont see any tools listed?
OK something weird has happened, I seemed to have lost my tool data base for all my tools now after going into mill wizard
That is very strange indeed.
Please try to re-load your Tool Database:
Hopefully this will re-load the full Tool Database.
Hi Jennifer, Opened up Artcam went to tool data base hit browse to select tool pasted (C:\Users\Public\Documents\ArtCAM Files\Tool Database\) got the tool_database_2015.tdb file hit the open but nothing loaded

With regards to importing your Tool Database, this is almost certainly a permissions issue with your Windows user account.
Please check if you have full Administrator rights to the C:\Users\Public\Documents\ArtCAM Files\Tool Database folder, as shown in the image below:
I recommend that you set the permissions to allow writing to the tool_database_2015.tdb file and Tool Database folder, then try importing the same Tool Database, and check if this allows you to import the tools successfully.
You can find instructions on how to change permission here.

Hi Shirish, thank you for responding back to me. It looks like I have permission but I am not internally sure how to import the tool list or even were they are? Not that great with PC

Thank you for sharing your screenshot. It shows that you do have full Administrator rights on your computer.
There are two locations where the tool_database_2015.tdb file is stored as part of the default ArtCAM 2015 R2 software installation:
Although you only have a C: drive on your computer, please try the steps shown in the following screencast to import the Tool Database:
If you are still unable to import the Tool Database, please use Autodesk Screencast to create and share a screencast demonstrating the issue you've encountered after following the steps in my screencast. This should allow me to troubleshoot this issue further.
