Inventor 2013 open *.prt (Pro/E file) issue

Does any body know why Inventor 2013 cannot open an *.prt (Pro/E) file as attached?

 

I can open it in Inventor 2009, but when I tried to open it in Inventor 2013, it said "Unable to convert Pro/ENGINEER or Creo Parametric file to Inventor file."

Autodesk Inventor Professional 2014 (64 Bit Edition)
Build: 246, Release 2014 SP2 Update 2
Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1
Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5645
12.0 GB Memory

First thing I noticed is that there was a space in the filename. Pro/E doesn't allow spaces in filenames?

After removing the space - I was able to open the file in Creo 2.0

 

Edit - I was able to open the file in Inventor 2013.

Opened as a Solidworks file in Inventor 2012. File is blank.

Opens well  as Pro/E-PRT in 2010, too.

2011 and newer versions refuse.

 

Comments from ADesk are welcome.

Interesting; Jeffrey.

Renaming to RPEE_LEN.prt did it here, too.

 

Thanks

Thanks lot, Guys!

 

After removing space, it works.

 

Inventor 2009 accept space, 2013 does not.
