and then this steps:

I generated a new .pro and a new .dat file.


name Simscape Multibody Link

startup dll

exec_file matlabroot\bin\win64\cl_proe2sm.dll

text_dir matlabroot\toolbox\physmod\smlink\cad_systems\proe\text

unicode_encoding false                                                                                                    'got the message without this line too'



When i start creo parametric as admin i get this message(my translation):

Good day Stefan,

Rather than a document, it should be posted as a question within the Creo – this will get the most eyes on it.

Please open a new discussion within Creo and post your question there.

Please let me know if I can be of assistance.
