Good day all.
I've encountered a problem in which some (but not all) of the custom user toolboxes set up in a dgnlib file are not appearing after upgrading to the latest version of MS SS4 (08.11.09.867).
There are two in particular which I know still exist in the dgnlib file, as they're available to all other users in my office, who are using a somewhat older version of SS4 (08.11.09.714). But on this machine, it simply looks as if they don't exist. I couldn't find any information about this particular issue, and I can't think of anything about those toolboxes that sets them apart from the others, aside from the fact that they contain more tools.
Any help would be appreciated.
Edit: I noticed after posting that I'm experiencing a very similar situation with some VBA modules. The VBA Projects are all present, but a number of modules are missing from the project when I access it using the VBA developer in my copy of MS (the upgraded one), whereas they're all present when accessed from a different copy of MS.
Further Edit: I've now discovered that my dimension and text styles are also not being read. More specifically, a dimension style is being read (named PCS), but it's styled differently and I'm unable to update from library.
Are all of the toolboxes in that single DGNLIB that everyone has access to? or is it possible that some of them were stored (possibly accidentally) in a personal DGNLIB file (that may unfortunately have been blown away)?

This is a shared dgnlib. I'm 100% positive that no toolboxes were in any other files, because I reworked the standards in this office myself a few years ago, developing the tool set in VBA.
Which brings me to another issue... I have modules missing from the VBA. The projects are all there, but some of the modules are missing. Again, this is only when accessing the VBA Developer with my upgraded version. Other users can still see them.
That sounds like something in the configuration is set differently from the other computers, but I am not sure what...If you have a copy of the old Configuration Explorer, it might be worth running that to make sure that everything is resolving correctly.
Can you Repair the installation, or delete it and reinstall fresh? It's possible some bit of data didn't install correctly.
I do not have a copy of the CE, unfortunately. I'll try a repair install tomorrow. I just felt like I shouldn't have any of the original configuration if it was broken in this install, but I have bits and pieces of it.
I kind of agree with you, but I've seen stranger things fixed by a clean install.
I believe that you can file a service ticket with Select Support, and they can get you the V8i Configuration Explorer.
