  • Hi,

     

    It seems that the file association has been corrupted, I would like to suggest you perform the following steps to reset it.

     

    Change the file association

    ================

    1. Click the Start Button and click Default Programs.

    2. Click "Associate a file type or protocol with program."

    3. Click the XXX file extension and verify whether it is correctly set to open with the program which you want to use.

    4. If the configuration is not set correctly, please highlight this XXX file extension and click the Change program button.

    5. Check whether the program is listed in the Recommended Program or Other Programs. If so, please choose the program and click OK.

    6. If not, please click the Browse button to locate the correct program.

    7. Click OK.

     

    What’s the result?
