Selecting Yes will upgrade the group to the current version. This version cannot be opened in earlier versions of DriveWorks.

Selecting No will cancel the operation.

Importing components can be done from the following areas:

Components cannot be imported from the currently open group.
Please note the following behavior when importing component sets of the same name.
  • If the component being imported has the same name and location as a component in the open group, it will overwrite the existing component.
  • If the component being imported has the same name but different location as a component in the open group, it will be added as a new component.
