Picture file MENC can't open in my PC


.MENC file extension is a Windows Mobile Encrypted File.

Open this link to read more about .MENC file. It say's there,

"MENC files are designed to be decrypted by the device that created the file. Therefore, MENC files can be transferred to a PC using Windows ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center, but it may not be possible to decrypt the file on the computer. Also, changing the GUID on a MENC file will disable the ability of the decryption program to properly decrypt the file.

To avoid encrypting files, go to Settings ? System or Settings ? Security on the Windows Mobile device and uncheck the box that says "Encrypt files placed on storage cards.""

How do i download video clip onto vlc


Hi there,

It depends what you are attempting to download. If you're trying to download streaming video, you would need some pretty advanced software like Camtasia's Screen Recorder.

However, if it's an actual video clip available for Download, you can do this.

Save the video clip to your Desktop or to a location you recognize. Once it's downloaded, open the File Location and right-click on the Video. Select Open With, then select Choose Default Program. From here, select "Browse", then search for VideoLAN VLC Player. Once you select the video file, make sure that the check box below is set to "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file."

Once you do this, every time you open an AVI File it will open it VLC Media Player. If you don't want this, just make sure "Always use the selected program..." is unchecked.
If this solution doesn't resolve your problem, please return to this page and submit a response. I will be happy to assist you further. :)

When i tried to open a file on my machine a message was displayed that the machine did not know what program to openthis file with. i had the choice to choose from a list the program i would like to open...


The quickest way is to save that same file type to the desktop, right click on the file and click "Open with" and when the program box comes up, choose the appropriate program and tick the box to always open with that program and it'll change the program the file opens with.

I CANNOT VIEW MENC FORMAT


The .menc extension is the indicator that tells whether a file is encrypted. The purpose of the extension is to indicate that you can't open those files. A Lock icon is also associated with the encrypted files.
When you insert the storage card back to your device where the files were encrypted, the [GUID] will match with the decryption key on your device and the [GUID].menc extension will not be displayed. Encrypted files will appear just like normal files and they can be opened.

Decrypting files:
To decrypt files that are encrypted, the current solution is to transfer them from the storage card to a computer via ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center, and then copy them back to the storage card after the Storage Card Encryption has been disabled on the device.
  1. To disable Storage Card Encryption:
  2. Go to Start>Settings>System Tab>Encryption.
  3. Uncheck the box that says “Encrypt files placed on the storage card.”
  4. Tap OK.

I'm unable to open .eml attachment in Windows Vista.


Here's some info: E-mail message saved by Microsoft Outlook or other e-mail program; may also contain an e-mail attachment, or file sent with the message. Note: If EML files will not open in Outlook Express, try the following:
  1. Open My Computer.
  2. Select Folder Options from the Tools menu.
  3. Click the File Types tab.
  4. Under Registered file types, select EML Outlook Express Mail Message, then click Advanced.
  5. Click Open, then click Edit.
  6. Type the following line in the "Application used to perform action" box:
    "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\MSIMN.EXE" /eml:%1
  7. Click OK twice, then close the window.
EML files may also be opened in Internet Explorer since they are formatted the same as .MHT files; changing the file extension from ".eml" to ".mht" should cause the file to open directly in Internet Explorer.
Hope this helps.
