problems importing IFC files


Hello, I have Archicad solo 25 and I am not able to import most of the IFC files via merge to file (interoperability) or open from file option. some of the files come with .IFC extension and some with .ICF. All I get is message saying ' 

Can't open "Wall_Cladding_Alubel_Easywand.Ifc.lcf" in this dialog. or 

Can't open "Wall_Cladding_Alubel_Easywand.Ifc.lcf" in this dialog.


Can you please advise ?

Thank you 


Hello archinade,


Archicad is often linked to libraries.

These libraries are gsm files into folders or lcf.

These LCF files are Library Contener File 


Are you sure you are linking a IFC and not a LCF ?
