Q - question

Autodesk ReCap 2015 will not load a Faro .FLS point cloud file.

A - answer Nothing is loaded when attempting to import a point cloud file in the FLS format (Faro) - the project is empty.

Try to unregister and register the iQOpen file (DLL) of the Faro engine in the Windows .NET assemblies folder:


or (if exists):


You can do it by running the following DOS commands (as the Administrator) in the above mentioned folder:
