Importing .ai file "Adobe version CS3 or later required"

I am trying to open an .ai file into SolidWorks. Each time, I get an error telling me that I must use CS3 or higher of Illustrator to open the file. However, I have been.


I first tried it with Adobe CC on a Mac, then saved it as a CS6 version, then as a CS3 version. None worked.


Then I tried it with Adobe CS6 on a PC.


Both times I used SolidWorks on the PC. All versions are 64-bit. Latest version of SolidWorks.


Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions? Yes, I restarted the program. I searched the forums and couldn't find much.
