Thanks to all the replied. I THINK (think) I have it fixed. I am not sure why this fixes, or maybe I finally got lucky and the INTRALINK gods above saw fit to give me some good luck....It seems to me that at no time can PRO/E or PRO/ILINK be loaded into directories with spaces, if you want Import/Export to work. This includes different releases of PRO that ILINK supposedly knows nothing about (not called out in setup for launching PRO). So here is what I did, for what it's worth..Most of it was a guessing game till I got it to work:
For the windows 2000 machine: Left Release 2001 alone Uninstall Wildfire (same dir as 2001, different folder) Uninstalled Wildfire 2 from program folder (folder had spaces)
Import and Export work fine now for 2001 maybe ILINK was getting confused somewhere as to where to look/launch, ever though it was clearly called out.
Reinstalled Wildfire and Wildfire 2 into same directory (different sub-folders) as 2001, and all seem to be working
On XP machine (had NO other releases or builds of PRO): Uninstalled both PRO and INTRALINK First installation was to a directory with spaces; then uninstalled and reinstalled into dir w/out spaces, still did not work. Uninstalled both again Removed registry info Reinstalled both in directory without spaces Everything works fine
So basically, I have really know clue, and Tech Support was no good either cause they kept telling it was the Timeout Error and for the most part gave up on the call...
