Cannot Find Symbol Files

Applies to:  AutoCAD Electrical 2006-2010

Challenge

When inserting components or using AutoCAD Electrical tools, you receive the following message:

File not found: WD_M.dwg
 
This issue will occur with each project after an upgrade for AutoCAD Electrical.

 

 

Solution

This occurs when changes have been made to the environment like an upgrade or moving folders to custom locations. 

The outdated paths are contained in the project file, so you must update the project paths by reading the current environment file.

Right click the current project in the Project Manager, select Properties. 

Select Schematic Libraries and select the default button as shown in the image.  Repeat for the other 3 sections.
