    To get started, you choose the Import wizard: File -> Import -> Data -> Data Model Import Wizard.

    From there, select your Model Format (ERwin 7.x), fill in the remaining values and continue on to import the model into IDA.

      I could not see an option as File -> Import -> Data -> Data Model Import Wizard in IDA 8.1

      When you File -> Import -> it shows you a box with different options.

        Do you have the Data perspective at all?

            Was just surprised by the lack of a Data option in your Import menu, but then I was reminded of the fact that you might not have selected the Model Import/Export option during install. By default, it isn't selected. I am attaching a screen shot showing the option that I am talking about during install.

              Thanks a lot. That was really helpful, I reinstalled it.

              But while importing I am able to select the file and go thorough the process but its giving me an error.

              Can you have a look at this?

                Glad you could get further! You need to set that path to java. It's described here:

                Thanks,

                  The Java path is also setup in IDA 8.1. So while reinstalling, I installed it in a new folder which gave me that error.

                  Solution for the second problem: When installing it again, please see that you delete the folder IDA 8.1.0 in the IBM folder. It will automatically create one again during the install.

                  Thanks for your info.
