Tip: Updating the Instance Index File
Whenever you move a generic model from one directory to another using operating system commands, update the instance index file by clicking File > Manage Session > Update Index in the source and destination directories. This ensures that the instances of that generic can be retrieved from their new directory.
Do not edit an instance index file from outside Creo Parametric. Creo Parametric does not recognize the file if it is edited outside of the application.
