swp 6.0.15 on MSwin

Start the program, do File -> Import Tex, then
navigate to the SWP55 SWSamples folder and
select the beamer file (PackageSample-Beamer).

Error executing command 'importtex'

from the system. I tried this with a couple of
other SWP55 files in the same folder, as well
as with one of my own SWP55 documents;

This is a bit surprising, since many of the
changes noted with 6.0.15 have to do with
importing. Surely someone checked that the
import function was working before releasing
the update?

Is there a PackageSample-Beamer_work directory? If so, try deleting it and importing again.

What do you see when you click on the More Info button?
