Opening an Adobe Illustrator File in PS

I sent a person an adobe illustrator file (*.ai) and he tried to open it in photo shop -- but couldn't.  He said that I*.a.i) is not one of the file types that Photo shop will open.

Is he missing a converter?    What is the solution?

Thanks!

AI is a supported file fomat. When opening the .AI file in PhotoShop, check to see if the selection box includes Generic EPS formats. Check also the photoshop sub-folder and look for a file named <aipaths.8by> under the *plugins* sub-folder. If this is missing, he may need to reinstall PhotoShop and do a Customized installation so he can select the missing components.

Make sure you have saved the file as an EPS from Illustrator. That could be the problem.
