I have downloaded files which are UNIX based apparently and am wondering if there is a free binary converter to make them compatable to the Windows or NT environment. Couldn't find any feedback on the forum list that was helpful.
Well there is a free conversion program, this is if you transfered the Unix files via a non binary format. Then you would need to use the 'dos_to_binary.exe' located in the loadpoint\i486_nt\obj folder of Pro/E. This will then convert an entire directory or directory structure for you.
Hello 1st post.. I ran into this problem the other day and did a google search and I ended up on this thread. I have a few thing to say. I did end up being able to use the files.
The first time I downloaded them I did not use a true ftp data transfer program. I just used a copy/paste method from Internet Explorer. The files were zipped and tared with a tar extention. I use winzip to unzip the files and there is a option in winzip that I unchecked to fix. Goto options/configuration/miscellanious...uncheck the box TAR file smart CR/FL conversion.
I use Window 2000 with Pro_E 2001 and the files came off of a sun unix system running Pro_E 2001.
