Is there a way to import the old WaterCAD version 7 library files, with a file extension .HLB, into the Engineering Libraries for WaterCAD, WaterGEMS, and HAMMER V8i?
The library files for WaterCAD V8, WaterGEMS V8, and HAMMER V8 have a different format than older versions of the product. The new file format is .XML. Unfortunately, there is no way to directly import these files in the Engineering Library.
Instead, please contact Bentley Technical Support and they will be able to convert these files for you. You will also need to let Technical Support know the type of library file it is. Once you have the files, you can import these into the Engineering Libraries by open the program and going to Components > Engineering Libraries. Highlight the type of library file you will be importing (such as Minor Loss Library) and click the New button. Choose to Add Existing Library. Browse to the new .XML file and import this. It will then be available for use in the program.
