Specifying the Data Location

For the data location, select a directory to store program data such as parts, templates, and 2D and 3D symbols. This location should be a dedicated directory. It cannot be a root directory or the same directory used to store SOLIDWORKS data.

The default directory is C:\ProgramData\SOLIDWORKS Electrical. A folder called Update is added to the same directory to store all of the available program data.

When you launch SOLIDWORKS Electrical for the first time, the Update Data wizard displays. In this wizard, you can select the data to be added into the application and the SQL Server database.
