Trying to open a DXF2000 file and I get a "Text Import Options" window instead of the scaling window I am supposed to get.   I have followed many other posts here and have installed a new C++ runtime  and tried to regress to AI v. 25.4.1 ( the oldest I have access to with CC)  I am new to AI.  How do I get around this problem?  Screanshots are in reverse order....  Thanks for any help!2021-12-13 (1).png2021-12-13.png

FYI, I am using AI on a Windows 10 system.

Your file does have a .dxf suffix, right?

What software are you using to export the dxf file? does it have options to export to different types of dxf? try them all to see which one works with illustrator.

The files were exported from AutoCAD 2021.  I used DXF 2000 which I understand is the most widely used format.
