In Windows 7 I use "sldsetdocprop.exe"...how do I break toolbox links while running an install in Windows 10? You can still use the same tool. Are you saying it's not working, not available or another issue?

A lot of the standard weldment profiles that are shipped with SolidWorks were obviously made from taking the toolbox structural member shapes and saving out their sketch as a library feature part. Unfortunately, they didn't clear the toolbox flag when they did it so these files still read as toolbox parts. When you take your library and save it into a PDM vault (standard or professional) you get errors that you have toolbox parts in a non toolbox folder. The obvious fix is to run the

Unless someone can tell me otherwise, I can't seem to find nyloc nuts in the Toolbox. Someone at my work did download a nyloc and place it in the toolbox area of our PDM, but it has several mate issues. I tried pulling up a toolbox nut to look at the mate references so that I could try to find out how to set the mates up properly - but that was no help.

I am using different grade and material fasteners. For example I have both a .250-20UNCx1" grade 5 bolt and a stainless .250-20UNCx1" bolt and a .250-20x1" grade 8 bolt. They are used on different projects but they all share the same toolbox. How can I assign different part numbers to them even though they are the same configuration of the toolbox component?

I'm trying to use the sldsetdcoprop application to remove some toolbox flags from some part files. I am not able to run this program. I get a windows error box stating that zlib.dll is missing but I find that file is several SolidWorks directories.

My VAR asked us to look at using the Create Parts setting in Toolbox rather than using Create Configurations. This is part of the effort to reduce file size and increase stability. For now our Toolbox is pretty stable but the main issue is the file size of , say the hex bolt, due to all the configurations (9.05 MB). When you add 50-100 hex bolts to an assembly it can add up.

I've been using Toolbox for the last year or so with no issues, but now when I open it in the Task Pane it tells me that it's not configured. So I go through and configure it, save it and try to browse the toolbox but cannot. Does anyone have any idea why it is no longer configured, and if there is any way I can get it working again?

I made a rod with a 1"-8 UNC thread on both ends. Now I need a nut that matches it, so I went to the ANSI Inch and selected an 1-8 hexagonal nut, the problem is that it doesn't seem to match with the thread on the rod. My doubt is where can I find a nut with an 1"-8 UNC tap.

2017 toolbox problem We went from 2015 to 2017 a couple weeks ago and little things keep popping up. Recently, occasionally, when starting SW I'll get a message stating "You appear to have experienced problems last time you loaded the SW Toolbox add-in". the first time I saw this I didn't recall having any problems, been using SW2017 about a week when this first appeared.

I am working on Configuring Toolbox for the company I work for. the issue i am having is you can create and limit fields but I don't see how to limit combinations of fields. I am currently working on the bolt part for my toolbox and I have over 22,000 possible configurations of bolts and only approximately 200 of those configurations will have a part number assigned to them. Thus I do not want my users to be able to select any configuration that doesn't a part number associated with it.
