Error: You need to open a target database of the import

Post by dstaaf » 01 May 2017 23:49

When I try to install the ecoinvent free databases this is the error I receive every time,"You need to open a target database of the import". I have tried everything. Does anyone know what this is? Please advise. My version of OpenLCA is 1.6 and it happens to all ecoinvent databases 2.2-3.3

Thanks.

See also the screenshots please.
A "free ecoinvent database" is of course only available under certain conditions (non OECD, academic use).
