Hello. I am using MATLAB r2014a and Solidworks 2016. I have installed the necessary sim mechanics link. When i open solidworks, I can save my parts and assembly as .XAML (extensible application markup language) but not .XML (extensible application language). Everything that I can find online says xaml is still xml just a sub-class of it. However, when i open matlab and use mech import, it says either .xaml file type not supported or .xml file not found depending on which i type in. Is there a way i can use mech import for xaml files?

You have to execute your matlab as an admin then after doing that, yo go to solidworks and in the right corner where is the configuration icon you go and open compliments, then you choose to activate the sim idk what and that´s it. I´ll leave a link in spanish
