I want to open a file with a .DAE extention,

I click on Import:

After I click on Import, the following dialog box opens:

So I click OK, then I get the following error:

I've tried installing OpenCollada, ColladaMax, plugins.
I've installed Service Pack 1.

Still can't import these files without 3d max crashing...

After installing ColladaMax and others, have you chosen the other .dae file type in the import dialogue?

There is more than one file type with the same .dae extension, so installing a plugin and still choosing Autodesk Collada (*.DAE) won't change anything.

I can't believe I forgot to select the new OpenCollada .DAE type. @_O... Thank You !!!

I'm currently using this plugin:

Is it the best or is there a better one ?

I use the 3.05_B version of ColladaMax

You can find a couple of versions here and some info:

Is it better? Or the best? I have no idea, the programmer in my game dev team sent it to me, works fine with our tools.
