Summary0004323: Import of any .dae (Collada)-file fails
DescriptionAccording to

FreeCAD on Windows should be able to open/import .dae-files

On Windows since 0.15 pycollada is included in both the FreeCAD release and developer builds so no additional steps are necessary.'

Nevertheless every import of .dae-files (Open as well as Import) fails (see screenshot attached). If somebody tells me where to find the errormessage at the bottom of the screenshot, I could provide it.
Steps To Reproduceopen/import any .dae-file
