Design Link cannot open SolidWorks 2009

Just installed Moldflow Advisor 2010 and DesignLink 2010.

DesignLink 2010 will not open a SolidWorks 2009 file. I had no problems with the identical part saved as SolidWorks 2006. But even the most simple 2009 part makes DesignLink barf.

Is this expected? Is there a forthcoming version of DesignLink that will work?

Hi Bill,

This is expected because Autodesk Mldflow Design Link 2010 does not yet support SolidWorks 2009.

Until this version is supported, please export your model in Parasolid format. You can then import the Parasolid model into Autodesk Moldflow Adviser 2010.
