You need to run the Update to V2 Objects command.

THis is found in the TOol Menu under Utilities>Update to V2 Objects.

Windows and door PIO's created in VW 8 are version 1 plug in objects. VW 9 changed the code and updated them to version 2 objects. Because of this, the doors and windows need to be updated with this special command to make them compatible with the new version of VW.

Converting VW 8 to VW 10 files will need the same thing done.

Converting VW 9 files to VW 10 files do NOT need the command run.

Thanks Katie,

It worked, but with a little problem with a door; it changed a 3'-6" wide door to an 8" wide door; any clues?

best,
