Under Tools, Options , File Locations, add your path in the Weldment Profiles section. I save mine in a folder that is easier to find. I think the default data is under C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks\data\weldment profiles

Try this location
I think you gave too much info to SW

C:\solidworks data\weldment profiles

Move aluminum angle data to same level as steel profiles
Alum angles would be same level as ANSI Inch

C:\solidworks\data\weldment profiles\alum angles
C:\solidworks\data\weldment profiles\ANSI Inch
