    Default Empty Toolbox When Configuring?!

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hey folks,
    I'm a bit new to SolidWorks, so I could be missing something obvious, especially since no one else on the internet seems to have this problem.

    I'm trying to get my toolbox configured. The "Hole Wizard" screen looks as expected, but when I get to the "Customize Hardware" screen, nothing is there! See the image: Capture.jpg

    I have followed this tutorial (http://www.javelin-tech.com/blog/201.../#.V_3CuvkrJD8), but still no love.

    I'm using SolidWorks 2014 on Windows 8.1 Pro.

    Any help is much appreciated!!

    On the right side of the screen in the Design Library click "Configure Now" for the toolbox. The toolbox components need to be installed with SW but can be configured after the fact.

    Are you running on a system that has upgraded from an older version of Solidworks without a clean install? It will be located on your machine in the install directory under C:\SOLIDWORKS Data\Browser. If you have multiple installs you will see a (2) after Solidworks Data.
