Please any Help?

You can try "Extract elements to a folder" rather than "Read elements directly from archive" when opening the .pla file.

Recently I brought a project from AC 6.5 to 17. I ran into your error message at some point, and I think changing from archive to folder solved it. Selecting the folder rather than the archive option definitely resulted in fewer problems in the Library Loading Report. You could also try these file converters:
ArchiCAD File converters
if that fails.
