This is the old fritzing discussion forum. Search it for valuable information from 2009 to 2015.
I've tried to import the Adafruit library and/or individual parts using both the File->Open, and Bin->Import methods but I keep getting the error message "Unable to open shareable C:/Document and Settings/.../adafruit.fzbz"
I've saved the downloaded file to various locations on my pc, but no joy.
I've managed to import the DFRobot library without any problems so I thought it might be a problem with the library, but after a search on their forum it seems that no-one else has had the same experience.
I'm using version 0.7.12 on Windows XP SP3
Can you point me to the library you are attempting to import?
Thanks for the reply,I've found out where I was going wrong.On this page https://github.com/adafruit/Fritzing-Library I was right clicking on the library and doing Save link as... It downloaded a fritzing application file, but didn't work when importing.I just tried left clicking the library file link and then left clicking View Raw on the next page and this downloaded a file that worked and imported into fritzing as expected.Sorry for any bother, I feel a bit silly now but hopefully this will serve as a reminder to anyone with a similar problem :) Thanks
