problem with step and iges files

Hello,

a friend of mine drew a simple component using Catia. He gave me the files of this component in .stp and .iges format. When I try to open the files with NX in .step format I obtain the error: "Library not found", while when I try to open the file in .iges format the following message is displayed: "It is impossible to find or to load the library of the IGES' converter. Install the optional Kit for .iges".

What should I do?

If you have the licenses for the translators then it would seem that there might have been a problem with the install.

Was NX installed using the "Quick Install" or "Typical Install" option?  It could just be that the Translators were not installed when NX was originally installed.  You can check by running the Siemens NX 11.0 InstallShield Wizard and choose "Modify".  When you hit "Next" you'll see which features are installed, one of which is "Translators".
