A message popup (snapshot attached) when opening Archicad 9. This only happened after I've run "Update Library Parts Advance" from Special Menu in previous session. It won't affect running archicad though but I find it annoying. :twisted:
So, what actually causes this error? and how can I fix this problem?

LiHigh,
I cannot answer your question, but would you mind
answering a question about this warning message ?
Normally, the contents of the "folders" in the "built-in library"
are not accessible in Archicad. For example the folder
"Archicad Resources Lib." or "NecessaryLPs"
can't be opened because they are not a real folders.
Your error message implies that Archicad has substituted
an "editable" (openable ?) version of all the "folders"
and their contents in the "built-in library".
Do you now have the contents of all of those folders
accessible just like the contents of the folders in
the extracted form of the AC 9 Library ?
Thank you,
Peter Devlin

LiHigh,
Thanks for the reply.
I was hoping for a minute there that you had somehow gotten
access to all those libraries.
On the subject of "Update Library Parts Advance", do you remember
when people were trying to update their pre-AC 8 lib parts to AC 8
using the special menu command and were getting warning messages
saying that some library parts were not updated properly or that
they were damaged? Finally, GSTR had to post an article saying
that the error message was false and there was nothing wrong.
Maybe GS never fixed this special menu command.
Just a thought.
Thanks,
Peter Devlin

LiHigh,

To get rid off this warning go to special menu and turn off the "Ignore built-in libraries" option (I guess you have turned it on accidentaly).

With this option you can use external libraries for certain add-ons that have built in library parts.

I hope it helps.

Tibor,

Thanx , the message is gone. :D

I've turn on "ignore built-in libraries" to avoid "update library parts advance" from accessing the built-in Lib. "update library parts advance" seem to try to hide scripts of all loaded library parts. :roll:

IS THERE A WAY TO HIDE SCRIPT TO JUST ONE PARTICULAR OBJECT SELECTED?
