I am using inventor 2012 and am trying to import my MDT(2002) drawings but when I try the translation process I recieve an error message that says Mechanical Desktop must be installed. I currently of both Inventor and MDT installed and both operate correctly. Any suggestion on how to fix this problem?

drawings or model?

can you attach an example dwg file here?

 

Actually I think you need MDT 2009 installed (it is free with your license).

Check this

also,

you could save out the MDT file as a standard AutoCAD file or acis or step to open in Inventor.
