GAMBIT - "ACIS error 1015: Access violation" while importing Parasolid or IGES files on Windows platforms

Importing Parasolid or IGES geometry files into GAMBIT on the Windows platform sometimes fail with a "ACIS error 1015: Access violation" error.

Common source of this error is the folder - subfolder structure. GAMBIT has a certain limit on the number of characters in the file path name in its import function. Try to create a folder with short name, e.g. C:temp, put the parasolid/iges/step file there and try to import it. Also try to avoid using folders with spaces in their names, e.g don't use "Documents and Settings" and a part of your folder tree.
