I got the exact same case from a client.

I tried the client's Erwin XML file in 16.6.4 SP04 PL01 64bit and it works fine.

Are there any messages in the Output window? Sometimes people hide the Output window, or just don't notice the messages it contains.

Please provide a step-by-stpe list of what you did, such as which model types (CDM, LDM, PDM) you asked it to create for you.

I'm on a slightly different version of PD but having the same issue. I'm at 16.6.0.0. I'm actually exporting from IBM's Infosphere Data Architect into ERwin 7.x XML format and then importing into PowerDesigner. I had this working in May but I didn't write down my steps and now having trouble reproducing a successful import.

Last year at another Client, I'm pretty sure I was doing the same thing with Erwin models out of ERwin. I found you couldn't import the native ERwin file format, but if you save/exported the ERwin model into the XML format, PD could ingest it just fine.

So today to import this .XML file, on PD I'm going to 'File' --> 'Import' --> 'ERwin File' I pick the .XML file ...and nothing happens. There are no messages in the Output window. This is the same version I was using in May; same machine. I even found the file I imported in May and tried it again. Nothing.

So if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears.
