Issue Details

I'm experiencing an error while trying to import an Arduino Template in NI Multisim™, regarding a Database mismatch. How can I overcome the error?


There are several solutions for this error:
  •  Be sure to have Circuit Design Suite (Multisim™ and Ultiboard) version 13.0 (or later)
  • If the problem persists, since you already have the correct version, check if you have access to the Database.
  • Check if you are able to access to your User database and if you have any components in it.
  • Check also the version of Multisim™ that you have selecting Help>>About Multisim™, you should see version such as Student, Education etc...
  • When Multisim™ ask you for the database file, you should select UsrComp.usr.
  • If the problem still persists: the conversion from one version of Multisim™ to another appears to generate a new file and places it deep in the windows file structure. Find it by searching  in C: drive for the .usr file extension and then correlated the file creation time. Move it to your Multisim™ working folder and then follow the instructions for merging the library .

Additional Information

Furthermore if the board outline in the shield template, they appear to be individual pieces of graphic objects and not the board outline set the global file path in version 14 as: Options>>Global Options>>Path>>Database files>>User database. Edit it to new location.
