The original Solidworks file was most likely created with a newer version of Solidworks that 2010 Inventor can convert.

I'm not sure why you can't open it, it opens fine for my using Inventor 2011. What are your settings set to when you click on the options button before trying to open the solid works file? I've attached a screen shot of my settings if that helps. I've also saved it as a STEP file, try opening that one and see if you have any luck with that.

Hi phil I would agree with Kevin
There is still away around it :)
download the STEP file and open that with IV as STEP files are multi platform and there will be no issues with that :) if there is not a STEP file for the model you can ask who uploaded there model to upload a STEP file and I am sure they will be more than happy to help you out...
