constraints turning red

    when i create a constraint it turns red and I don't know why.
    in the pic the "green pipe" is constrained to the grape colored box. it has an axis on the box and the axis on the pipe. this way I can rotate the pipe to where I want it. If I suppress the "green pipe", the the constraints turn black., if i un-supress the "green pipe" then the constraints go back red.
    what am i doing wrong? I can't see how there is a conflict with this, i guess that is what that means.
    I do have a "package" file of this, it is 3.7mb
    also i have shut off the error messages and don't remember how to turn on.

    Right click on the red constraint and select Status. That will show you the error and there is a check box to allow you to show error popups in the status error dialog.
