Pro/Program Replace through Interchange Assembly not functioning in Creo 3

I'm just curious if Creo 3/0 has made changes or added config.pro options that might affect the nature of how Interchange Assemblies function with Pro/program? I have used this approach extensively for many years with no issues. I have four components (assemblies) in my interchange assembly (example: A, B, C and D). When the assembly relations call for A all is fine. I can change from A to B, A to C, A to D with no problems but I can't go from B to C or B to D or , from C to D or C to B and so on but I can go back to A. If I start with A, then I can change it to any of them but from B, C, or D I get the the typical cryptic error message of "Pro/Program replace of component XXXX (M8685) failed in Assembly YYYY, Aborting regeneration due to failures executing Pro/Program". My reference within the interchange assembly is one CSYS.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Richard

Does your interchange assembly has a mapping of respective CSYS for all 4 assemblies (TAG created) ? if

Did the change from B to C work in any previous version and just stopped working in Creo03 ?

if the answer is Yes I'd encourage you to open a TS call for development to investigate the issue. Described capability is supported (replace B by C or D) and in general case works in Creo03 same as in previous versions.

Thanks

Re: Pro/Program Replace through Interchange Assembly not functioning in Creo 3

The Reference tag is created in each assembly. I can't validate if it worked in previous versions because I just created this brand new interchange assembly in Creo3. In the same assembly, I have older Components that are part of older Interchange assemblies and they still work. For some reason, I can't get this new one to work. My next step is to approach the helpdesk for a complete investigation. I was just wondering if might be a known issue since. We are using M010 which, naturally, should have some issues in it being one of the first versions.

Another tell that I think something is wrong is the fact that when I try to manually replace a component that is part of an Interchange assembly, the dialogue box shows the "by Interchange Assembly" options available but when I try to manually replace that specific component the option is greyed out.
