    ProE Import not working

    Michael Webster
      I have received a number of ProE files from a customer and am having trouble importing them into Solidworks

      I get the initial popup asking if I want to analyze the file completely or just import geometry, and whichever I select, once I hit OK, the window goes away, and nothing further happens. If I check my task manager, I can confirm that SW is doing nothing.

      I have never imported ProE files before, and I cannot verify that these are good files or not (though I have no reason to believe otherwise) - they are all of the format .prt.1 or .prt.2 as well as one .asm.2

      Interestingly, I cannot open these files in Solidedge 19 either, though I can generate a logfile for SE - it reports:

      LOG: Information: Pro/E File Version : 2900
      Error: Error writing X_T file
      Error: Translation failed

      I would almost expect SE to fail, as the version I'm using is a couple years old, but I have the latest SW 2009 SP1 64 bit. I'm running it on Vista 64

      Is there a way to have Solidworks generate a logfile? Any other ideas?

      Thanks
