Importing CAD data to geodatabase in ArcGIS 10.5

i am using the CAD to Geodatabase tool to import DWG files to a geodatabase.

In ArcGIS 10.2 and 10.3, this works perfectly well.


But when I try to do the same thing in ArcGIS 10.5 (no matter if I use the tool in ArcMap or if I use a Python script), I get the following error:


000354 : The name contains invalid characters.

If this refers to table names in the DWG file myself, then I don't know what to do; I have no CAD software and cannot change the DWG files myself. And it wasn't a problem in earlier versions of ArcGIS...


Can somebody help?
