    Pro/Engineer wildfire 4 M100 - PTCADDIN fails to load

      After multiple patch attempts and a complete reinstall of EPDM to version 2010 SP 4 I am unable to get the EPDM plugin for Pro/Engineer to load.  After upgrading I noticed that the ptcaddin.dll date was from 2009 so it looked as though it didnt get overwritten with the newer version; therefore, I ended up completely uninstalling and reinstalling.

       

      Regardless, I get the following error every time:

       

      Pro/TOOLKIT application 'PTCADDIN', from registry file 'C:\ptc\proeWildfire4-M100\text\protk.dat', predates Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire v4.0 but was not marked as using legacy encoding.

       

      Has anyone run into this and overcome it?  Thanks in advance!

       

      --- My protk.dat file ---

       

      name PTCADDIN
      startup dll
      exec_file C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Enterprise PDM\FileFormats\PTCAddin.dll
      text_dir C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Enterprise PDM\FileFormats
      delay_start false
      allow_stop true
      revision Wildfire
      end
