    Shared Parameter Error

    Hi all,

    I am getting this message when I try to insert a manufacturers window into my project. I have inserted other families that the manufacturer provides, with no issues. I tried to find the shared parameter that might be causing the problem; thinking that I could just do some name changing and fix the issue, but I can't locate it....Any ideas?

    You are getting a GUID conflict. Unless I'm completely off-base, you will need to change the GUID for one of the two parameters - I would change the manufacturers. There are some GUID generators online: https://www.guidgenerator.com/online...generator.aspx

    Heh, that's nothing. The World Record response time in RFO is 13 seconds. Also set by none other than Chad, aka Cellophane, aka "The Librarian". This is an Awesome place!

    Fixed that for you


    To add to my earlier response - I would change the manufacturers parameter because changing yours could lead to issues downstream (assuming one of the parameters in the screenshot is yours, not the mfr.)
