The first part of this process is to install the Standard Parts Administration tool, which can be found on the main Solid Edge Install DVD:
This will install the database and the master part files (a small subset of standard components) and will add 2 items into your start menus, the Configuration Wizard and the Administrator:
The configuration wizard should be run next to ensure that the file paths are set. If you are using a server to install the parts on to, you will need to specify a UNC path, otherwise, if you are installing the parts on to your local computer, you can use standard windows folder name.
Complete the fields in the configuration dialog box and select Save:
Standard Parts workstation setup
After you have set up the administration workstation, set the Standard Parts SAC file location on other workstations. The SAC file must be located in the UNC path that you defined during the
Standard Parts administration installation.
Set the Standard Parts SAC file location
Step 1: Start Solid Edge and open an Assembly file.
The assembly file can be an existing document or a new one. It does not matter, because you will not save any changes to the document, you are just using it to get into the Assembly environment.
Step 2: On the Application menu, click the Solid Edge Options button, which is located at the bottom of the menu.
Step 3: In the Solid Edge Options dialog box, click the File Locations tab.
Step 4: In the list of file types, click Standard Parts SAC file, click Modify, and browse to the location of the SMAPINIFile.sac file in the installation folder created when you installed the Standard Parts Administrator.
