Resolution

Create a new Continuum text dump by highlighting the b3 or Infinet controllers only (rather than the Network Controller (bCX, NC2 etc)) and create a text dump. This is achieved by right clicking on the highlighted devices, choosing "Send To" then "Text File...". Use this new text file in the Continuum Conversion Tool. If this converts correctly then there is an issue in the Net Controller configuration.

Alternatively check the Net Controller configuration, specifically the "CommPort", in this example; the first 'CommPort' line should not exist and is the problem, once removed, the conversion then proceeds correctly.
