Tool Library Fail

Why are my students getting "Failed to import a library" when they import the tools file given by PLTW?
 

We are using Fusion 360 and when I import the file, I have absolutely no issues but when my students follow the steps they get that error message. Any thoughts?

Are the students running the software on a local computer or are they running the online version of Fusion?

Is the library local on their machine and are they importing it to a local library or cloud library?

Ok thanks. I'm trying to figure out if maybe it is a permissions setting. 

 

Here is something I just tried that you might want to do instead. I went to to the Fusion preferences --> Manufacture and then I enabled cloud libraries

When this is enabled, in the data panel you will see a folder (towards the bottom) called Assets. In the Assets folder is a CAMTools folder. I uploaded the tool library there instead, and now it is available under the Cloud section of my tool library.

I downloaded a Destiny Tool library from the Autodesk website.

Here you can see the Destiny tool library now appears in my cloud section even thought I didn't uploaded it directly into the Fusion tool library
