In MapleSim 7, custom libraries underwent a major update. If you created a custom library in MapleSim 6.4 or earlier, you must convert it to the new format to use it in MapleSim 7 or later.
To convert a library for use in MapleSim 7 or later:
Open a custom library (.msimlib file) created in MapleSim 6.4 or ealier.
On Windows, for example, the former default save location for custom libraries was C:\Users\<name>\AppData\Roaming\MapleSim\<version>\Modelica Libraries

A dialog asks: "Do you want to convert this library to the new format?"

Optionally, enter a description. The Location field indicates the directory in which the library is saved. (This is not editable. To change the save location, see the note on Creating a Custom Library.)
Click OK. A custom palette with the specified name appears in the Library Components tab (
