Warning: Cannot update component placement (m48)


Warning: Cannot update component placement (m48)

I keep seeing this warning when my assembly regenerates.

Naturally, I can find no trace of a component called m48, or with that id,
or number.
Of course, when I use the search tool to find any component that is not
regenerated, it returns nothing.

Wouldn't it be nice if, when it discovers things like this, Pro/E were to
highlight the offence in the model tree?

Any ideas how one could locate the mysterious component (m48)?

Drag you insert line halfway up the model tree and regen.  If the error
goes away, you know it was in the second half, if not it's in the first
half.  Keep dragging the line up  or don until you find the component
that generates the error.

You might find that it's a component of a subassy.  You also might find
that after an hour or so of dragging the error mysteriously just goes
