Thanks, but that's not it.
It has something to do with W7 and/or 64bit.
Downsaving doesn't do it.
And it is not just AI, it probably doesn't import any files.
I tried DWG, DXF, AI, EPS.
BTW, the import settings are the same as in on the XP
PC on which importing is no problem.
Thanks for the help, yes I did load the plug in.
It is all the same as on the XP machine, just W7 and 64bit.
Apparently I am the only one having this problem, guess it
must be something I am doing wrong.
It is just quiet annoying, I have to import everything on the
XP machine, while the W7 is the preferred workstation.
