Error Inventor Import

Hello, I have a problem to import a Inventor file into AP3D.
In Inventor I created a .adsk file and switched the settings to inch.

When I want to import the .adsk-file in AP3D it doesn't load the model.

Can anyone help me?

We have gotten some adsk files. For some files I will be asked for the insertion point, rotation and class (these objects then will be inserted properly) and for some imported adsk files it jumps directly to the "Create Equipment" UI. Why is that? Has it to do with the componenttype we select in AIP?

We are using a German AIP 2010 and Plant 3D in English.

Please apply the following hotfix to Inventor 2010:

Or, even better, install the newest Service Pack for Inventor 2010, which includes the hotfix as well.
