Need to read the link.

You need to add the Migration Libraries that are in the same folder that Library 26 is located.

GO to File-> Library Manager

There use the ADD button to make sure you have that list of libraries loaded.

Once you hit reload there shouldn't be any errors

Solution

Once you load the missing libraries AC will be able to read the missing elements.

That is provided that those parts are from the AC library that you have installed. If the Libraries are from another source (ie office) then you need for them to send you a copy.

Also if the project was started using AC_INT (or any other countries version) and you install AC_US or viceversa  then those Libraries will no have your missing objects and you will need a copy of those.

----

From your first screenshot you are missing a AC19 Door, loading Migration Libraries should have fix it. The other screenshot indicates that you are missing AC26 objects and loading the AC26 Library should fix it.

----

Those folders should be installed in "C:\Program Files\Graphisoft\Archicad 26"

I have dragged and copied library 26.lcf to the library manager but the doors are still missing.

How can I check the library source for the missing doors?

I have followed the instructions and clicked on the migrate button for each of the listed library in my project's library manager.

To make it more concrete, I will try to work on one element.

How can I reload the missing NCS Drawing Title 2 26.gsm?

The on add button prompts me to add a file or folder that I am missing.

I am not sure how this helps me recover the missing elements.
