      I had read somewhere that the latest Virtual Earth version will read KML files (which is the format that this tool creates).

      matt, I too recall something like that, but the 3DVIA application does not allow import unless you hack the temporary file (in 3dxml format in the %localappdata%\DassaultSystemes\CATTemp\VirtualEarth3DVIA folder) it can create and read and that way you could probably use 3DVIA Printscreent to create a 3dxml file, etc.
