It would be probably the easiest, if not you will need to rename the three that are correct and also change all in the DescriptorFile disk and edit the .vmx file.  So the path of least resistance is to rename the real extent so 21 all have this form: "Windows XP Professional-s # hard."

    I have searched this forum and the internet and have not found a definitive resolution to this matter.

  • Could not open file .jar on my windows 7

    Currently, I go to school online and we use Blackboard. I can't see or hear online presentations have .jar to the end of the file. Anyone know why? Can I use my old laptop with Vista and it works, but windows 7 does not work. Any suggestions?

    Note: I should have mentioned that I have installed Java several times and had the Tech Help. All they can say is that there is a problem with my windows 7. I tried everything Basic. Anyone has any ideas that are not conventional? Thank you!

    Hi Maggie,

    The .jar files contain Java applications (jar means Java ARchive).  You need the Java runtime environment installed on your computer to be able to run Java applications.  It's not made or provided by Microsoft software. _(file_format)

    I suspect there was an installation process, that you went through initially to use the Blackboard application on your system...  Your best bet is to go through this configuration once more on your Windows 7 system.

    However, if you want to dive into the nitty gritty, the Java runtime environment can be installed directly from the Sun Microsystems website online:


  • Could not open file .xls of recipients

    Sent by e-mail to several people with an .xlsb file attached. They are not able to open the file

    They must have a current version of Excel (Microsoft Office program), or a different worksheet, as LibreOffice calc or OpenOffice Calc.
    Not everyone has one of these programs, and they will not be able to open the file.
    For people who do not have a spreadsheet program mentioned, one option would be to export the file to PDF format. The recipient can then view, but not to manipulate the data.

  • "Could not open file for some reason any." Error message since then reinstall it.

    I have recently restored OS X from a backup, the same (current) version of the numbers and I use the same files (one document, different versions tried), but since I only get the error message "... cannot be opened for some reason any."

    I found absolutely no fix or solution floating around the web this fix in my case. I tried 3 machines, different, another user account fresh installation, conversion/dissemination/export the file, number in iOS and iCloud - nothing.

    This document contains the data value of several MONTHS of work and is encrypted password. It's just an unacceptable loss.

    Does anyone know another way to recover the data?

    If not, please give it a try, here's the document mentioned:

    So says "... cannot be opened for some reason any ', I'm having a very bad time...

    But If you are asked to enter the password - thank God - contact me

    There is nothing on the face of the planet to open a document from v3.6.1 numbers once you get 'Document.numbers' cannot be opened for a dialogue of reason. Be it password protected, or not makes no difference. Your only hope is to get a copy of older backup and restore. The same thing happens in the current versions of Pages v5.6.n also.

    Any other spreadsheet application would have not done this for you.

    Captivate 5

    I have

    I worked on this project (slide @175).  Suddenly, that I save my changes, the program freezes & has close & it seems now the file is corrupted.  Am I basically screwed here?  Is there a hope for this file?  I read that Captivate 5 manages so-called projects with 400 + slides, so mine should not be a problem.

    There are no other open programs, the file is not already open.  I guess I'm screwed & spend 2 days to redo the work I just do.  Fortunately, I have a backup, but a backup that does not include about 16 hours of changes.  This has always been a fragile product and I had hoped that Captivate 5 which had improved, but I do not.
