Why not just use the command line, Jim?  It's a lot faster.  But seriously:
I believe that the file it's looking for is part of the "Filters"
subdirectory.  Did you install the conversion filters when you
loaded the program?

If not, perhaps there's some error either in the .dlg file or the
.mnu file you've got loaded.  Have you done any customization of
those?  That sometimes brings on weirdness.

Anyway, try reinstalling just those files when the absurd install
program asks you what files you want.
