What's wrong with this assembly?

Hello people!
I downloaded this caster assembly from the Sunnex website, however when
I attempt to insert the assembly into my main machine assembly I receive
an error from SWX:
"You cannot insert a document template into another document."
I also noticed that if I open the assembly by double clicking it from
the MS Windows explorer, the filename inside SWX is blank!
I have a copy of the assy & files here:

The zip file was downloaded from here:

Thanks!

SWX 2005, SP3.0

I tried it and got the same error until I re-saved the caster assembly. Once I saved the caster assembly it inserted fine.

I just tried it also, and it's a bit strange. I see that the file, as opened, apparently thinks it's a template, rather than an assy, even though it has the file ext of sldasm. If you look up at the top at the title bar, you see that it doesn't really know what it is. But if you save it, it saves to the same name & ext and then it recognizes it as an assy. I see that it came from 3DPartStream, so maybe that's the way it works.

Paul,
Same here. Then I saved it to a different name and it worked.

Hmm, I tried that also,.. save it to a different name, close sw/open sw, and... it still does not work for me?
(btw, I ctrl-q all of the files, including the asm and close out sw after all of this, sumthin is definity screwed up!)

Yeah, that is pretty much exactly what I see too. I even updated to SP3.1, and there was no improvement.

It would appear they are using Partstream. Somebody with the username mkoch apparently built the model.
When I did a save as to a new name the problem seemed to go away. SW2005 sp1.1
