    Hi,

    the recommendation is to use an existing library, copy it, then edit it.

    But from your description you try to generate a new library from the scratch.

    Hi,

    if it doesn´t work the way you try then
    * either copy the library in WINDOWS.
    * or OPEN the library then SAVE AS xxx.lbr
