Since AS2 files are encrypted, you will need the software that encrypts them to read them. Normal programs found on your computer will not be able to read them

How to open rim files

Hi Raymond
Usually the best way to open a file created by a specific program is to install the program that created it.
So for example you would not be able to open a DNG file unless you had a program like Photoshop or Lightroom installed.
Here are some more possible reasons for not being able to open a file
  • The correct program is not installed.
  • The associated program to open the file is out-dated.
  • The registry entry of the file association is corrupted.
  • The file extension has not been associated with the correct program.
  • The file is corrupted by malware
  • Usually installing or re-installing the program that created or plays the file will fix these problems (after you have scanned your computer and eliminated any malware) be very wary of any tool on the web that offers a quick fix for this problem, and always scan anything you download with a virus checker/internet security suite.

    How to open files like skype on chromebook??

    To be able to open a file (however you obtained it through Skype, email, any way) your computer must have an application that is able to read it. For a pdf you need Adobe Acrobat (Reader) or other programs. To open a .doc, .docx you need Word.
    Nowadays, a lot of programs can open various formats. Sometimes it happens that the association of a program with file extension has been severed and the file does not open automatically.

    I am trying to print out pictures from my Samsun S860 digital camera and when it connects to my computer, the files look as thought they are written in Wing Dings and I can't print anything out nor save...

    This is a computer problem not a camera fault.

    Whatever program you are using to open the picture files is clearly not able to understand them. It may be opening them as if they were text files. Windows assigns various programs to types of files, as it seems to have assigned the wrong program in this case.

    What you need to do is get the type of file your camera is using (usually .jpg)to be assigned to the right type of program, a graphics viewer rather than Wordpad or whatever. You can do this using the tools menu at the top of any Windows directory- tools/folder options/file types will open a list of file type and their assignations, which you can change.

    To find out what program will display (and print) the files properly, instead of opening the file by clicking on it, drag it and drop it on a graphics viewer program on your desktop. If you don't have one, I suggest getting Fastsone Image Viewer, which you can download for free from

    How to open my limewire after dowbnloading?


    It's not clear in your post exactly what file you are referring to.

    Have you just downloaded the Limewire program, and are trying to install it? If so, it sounds as if the download is corrupted. Try downloading it again. You can get it here from the official website.

    If on the other hand you already have Limewire installed and the file that will not open is something you have downloaded with the program, DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY.

    Viruses and other nasties can be hidden with innocent looking files. The fact that it is warning you about operating system files and potential damage should set alarm bells ringing!

    Try getting the file again from a different source.

    Good luck.

    Unable to open e-mail attachment

    Open Files with .MSG File Extension Do you want to open a message with the Outlook .MSG file extension? The Encryptomatic MSG File Viewer makes it easy access Outlook MAPI message files (.msg files) created in Outlook 2000/XP/2003.
    MSG Viewer reads .msg files encoded in western characters. It will display the text contents of the .msg file on your monitor. You can also print the message, save it to a text file, and extract file attachments.

    Easy to Use Encryptomatic's Outlook .MSG Viewer is simple to use. It may be optionally installed as the default .msg file handler. This enables you to display a .msg file by simply double clicking it.
    Extracts File Attachments from Outlook .MSG Message Files
    Users can extract and save to disk any file attachments that were included in the Outlook .msg file, a useful feature not found in other viewers of this price class. To extract email attachments, just double click on the file attachment and save it to a directory.

    viewer-screen.jpg What it Doesn't Do
    The MSG Viewer is designed to give you quick access to an .msg file's text contents, file attachments and header information. It does not render colors, formatting or graphics, and it is not a full featured substitute for Outlook. With an RTF message with colored text and font formatting, the text will appear in black and white and the paragraph formatting will be lost (as in the message above). MSG Viewer displays only Western characters.

    No longer automatic from scan to PhotoEditor

    Have you tried making sure the file association is correct. The file association may have been changed by another program and therefore it will not automatically open. You can select a file the dell has previously scanned and right click and under the file properties select a new file association with the opening program being the Dell Photo Editor program. Hope that helps.
