Installing Prom 6 and importing a fbt file

In the MOOC Process Mining in action I worked with ProM 6.5.1. Now I installed ProM 6.6. and waited for installing all the plug-ins. Then I try to import a fbt file.
1. Which is the best plug-in to start with?
2. I think I tried them all, but I only get fault messages like this:
"Error with import of [;@51ee1175: org.xmlpull.v1.XmlPullParserException: only whitespace content allowed before start tag and not \uffd 


  • Dear Jose,

    Thanks for your question and for following the MOOC.

    The .fbt files are created for Disco and allow you to work with the MOOC data without a Disco license. ProM cannot work with the .fbt files but expects the .xes.gz files for instance. These are also provided in the MOOC.

    Happy mining!
