Library content issues

I'm using X6 and cannot see my library content. I've already looked for updates and am current. Also checked Core content, up to date.

The library button opens the window but the box is just blank white with just the 6 radio buttons at the bottom. Chief says they don't offer support that far back. I upgraded about 5yrs ago to X6, but never used this software for a project until now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your help! Your advice led me to an error message "The Library Import has completed successfully

None of the items from the import libraries could be read by this version"

I'm thinking, maybe reload the original software?

not sure about a re-install

where are you getting your library items from ?

 

when you download library items may sure you select the ones for X6

 

later library versions won't work in X6

not sure about prior versions - but they probably will

 

avoid X3 if they are even there as CA created a subscription service for X3

but abandoned it with X4 system that is still in use today

Are you Importing known  X6 Libraries ?  a User Library backup?  some more details may help....

 

Is your X6 the latest (last) version ?   ie 16.4.1.20 , not sure if 64bit vs 32bit makes a difference but make sure you have the right one anyway...

Also, it's good to have your Forum Signature filled in, especially with the Software Version,
and of course a real Name is nice too :) ..............see mine below in Blue for how to do that.
If you don't see my Signature then you have them turned off for the Forum so you need to
Toggle it on in UserName>Account >Signatures...... go to the Upper RH Corner of Forum Window.

Mick your fix worked!! The link with the repair option did the trick. I also turned on Signature and started adding detail as you suggested.

Thank you to all who offered help, your the best.

 

Good News :)   I would make sure you backup ALL the files including Core Libraries etc as eventually the files disappear from the CA Servers as new Versions come out.

      Many of these I have personally made or modified. Some of the content may have been created by others for which I will give credit. Many of the materials have free licensing, so no credit is needed. 
      Some of this content may slow down your program as I have a high powered machine and often times use complex and high resolution textures. I will try and give as much detail as possible. Use at your own peril!
       
      No but seriously dig through and enjoy, I've spent a good number of hours ensuring the quality of these symbols and will update them periodically- so CHECK BACK IN! and PLEASE GIVE A LIKE FOR THE POST OF ANY SYMBOL YOU LIKE, IT ENCOURAGES ME TO GO BACK AND REFINE/REDUCE/OPTIMIZE THAT SYMBOL. GIVE A DOWNVOTE AND IT'LL PROBABLY ENCOURAGE ME TO DO THE SAME THING...YOU'LL JUST BE A JERK FOR IT

      I have changed nothing in any of my settings since I worked on this plan this morning.  Now, when I go to my user library and the lighting I have saved there.  I have red outlines on the majority of them and I have no idea why.  Has anyone experience this?

      I am doing an ADA master bathroom and have looked in vain in the Chief and manufacturers libraries and have not found a pivoting wall mirror symbol.  It does not matter the shape.  I could swear that there was one.  If anyone knows where one might be hidden, I would appreciate help with this.  Using X-13 for interiors.
       
      Thank you.

      I'm running Version 12 but every time I try to download a new library and even though I click on V12, it opens my old version 11 and puts it in my V11 folder. I have to go copy it and move it to my V12 folder. Any ideas why?
