If it doesn't generate the gro file then you can always extract the last 
frame of your trr (if you need high precision and velocities) or of your 
xtc using trjconv (see trjconv -h, but something like trjconv -f in.xtc 
-o  out.pdb -b 2000 -e 2000, where I assume that the last frame is at 
t=2000ps, might do the job. Just try different options ;-)).

Again, use trjconv. Alternatively, VMD can read xtc.
