why does hardware (prt) come up with an error when I try to open my file. I have 3 different styles of a pem and all say " cannot open etc... Future version"
Yet i'm not using version 13
The part file is a SolidWorks 2013 file. You will not be able to open it in SolidWorks 2012 because the pem is a SW2013 file (a future version of SolidWorks).
Where did the PEM files come from? Is someone in the engineering group running SW2013?
There is no posibility to save SW files in earlier file types. So, you get a file saved in a future version that you have instaled on your station. You can see that part by open it in eDrawings (you have to download it from SW site, in that version that the file was created, or newer). Or ask the creator of that file to save it as some parasolid file, but in this way you lose all the features. The parts will be just solid bodies.
As .pem file types, see http://www.fileinfo.com/extension/pem. That is not a SW file.
Have a nice day.

Update your SW2012 to Sp 5 and you should be able to at least open them.
