IFX Fastener Error

I've created a custom screw in IFX and all works great except I get 1 error when placing the screw. When I select the hole, head and nut reference and click OK to place screw, I get an error saying......

What does this mean? I'm new at customizing IFX and can't figure this issue out.

 

Below is a portion of my .dat file.

What is the "INSTANCE row for? The template .dat has it in there and I was wondering if I even need that?

Thanks

Hi,

 

it seems like that the fastener has some unresolved relations in the .prt file.

Please make sure that the param_relations.txt create a correct relation set inside your fastener with the given parameters.
