How to Install a Foundation Library Update
This article includes details on the purpose of a Foundation
Library update and how to perform an update.
To perform a Foundation Library Update in the Toolbox, you must have Toolbox build 22.1.729.641 or newer to have the Library Update Utility button show up in your utilities interface.
Foundation Library Update
- Performing Foundation
Library updates are essential to keep up with the addition of new products, as
well as new features that support future expansions. With each update, modifications and
resolutions are made to the current features of the Foundation Library to
improve user experience and combat defects in the software. All of the new additions and modifications are viewable within the release notes for that specific update.
- If you are
not using the current release of the Foundation Library, you may
experience bugs that have been fixed and will want to consider updating. You
may also want to consider updating if you are in between projects or are
interested in new products or features.
a Foundation Library update will overwrite the current library data. The software can go into the spreadsheets of your specification groups to add new products, add new subassemblies, and add new graphics. A backup of your library data will automatically occur when using the Library Update Utility, so just in case an undesired change to your data is made, an option to undo the update is available through the Library Restore Utility. An additional precaution we recommend to prevent your data from being overwritten is to create a category in the Database Explorer for your company to store custom products. The update will only overwrite data for Microvellum products, so creating this folder and renaming your products will prevent these files from being updated. An overview of the Database Explorer feature is available here.
