I'm using Arc 9.3.1
I'm trying to convert some Google Earth files I made in Google Earth to a shapefile.  I have all the same type (polygons) saved in one folder.  I right click on this and choose save place as, adn give it a name and it is saved as a kml file. 

Now I am trying to use some added toolboxes to convert from KML to SHP (Convert KML to SHP, and Convert GPSFile to SHP) and both are not working for me except for my point files...  I get the following error... does anyone have any insight as to what I can do to fix this, and convert a kml file to shapefile?

Executing: kml2shp "C:\MESL Projects\MESL SOP\zz_TO DELETE\Heather's Scratch\HeatherPolygons.kml" POLYGON "C:\MESL Projects\MESL SOP\zz_TO DELETE\Heather's Scratch\HeatherPolygons_kml2shp.shp"

I hope to hear from you thanks!
