3 Things you should know about SolidWorks Search Routines


Changes are that appreciation is not what most people has on their mind when this message apear when opening an assembly. But if a tiny bit of frustration is coming to the surface do not point it at SolidWorks.
SolidWorks has at this point searched 13 different locations on your machine in a desperate attempt to get all referenced documents in order, for finally giving up with the above message.

13 locations to search…
1. Uses any open document with the same name.
2. Searches the first path that you specify in the Folders list in the File Locations Options dialog box.
3. Searches the path in Step 2 plus the last folder in the path where the referenced document was last saved.
4. Searches the path in Step 2 plus the last two folders in the path where the referenced document was last saved.
5. Repeats Step 4 until the full original path has been appended to the path in Step 2.
6. Recursively searches the first path in the Folders list, then recursively searches the path where the referenced document was last saved.
7. Repeats Steps 2 through 6 for the other folders in the Folders list.
8. Searches the path of the active document, then recursively searches the path where the referenced document was last saved.
9. Searches the path where you last opened a document, then recursively searches the path where the referenced document was last saved.
10. Searches the path where the software last found a referenced document.
11. Searches the full path where the document was last saved without a drive designation.
12. Searches the full path where the document was last saved with its original drive designation.
13. Allows you to browse for the document yourself.
