  • What program opens the .dvd file created on a Windows XP computer?

    I tried to open the video that have a .dvd file extension. I tried several trial programs, but none does not recognize the extension. The videos were created on my old computer using Windows XP, but many programs I moved were lost when the hard drive is gone on my new Vista machine. I do not have Vista Ultimate so I can't use the previous versions feature and I tried so many programs to open these films that the Properties tab shows that this last program that the file 'opens with '.

    3rd attempt to solve this problem

    Have a Samsung laptop. Windows 7. Have a file (see above) that I can't open. I do not have a program to open it and I don't know that one to download. I would like to delete the message that I get whenever I turn on the laptop but nothing I try gets rid of it. It drives me crazy. I scanned all files, etc, and I am not infected with viruses, etc.. Please tell me the program I need - or how to get rid of the pop up. Myra.

    Thanks for your reply but I removed my laptop Samsung Recovery Solution. That seems to have done the trick. I don't think I need it anyway. Myra.

  • Cannot open file because Windows needs to know what program created the file

    After downloading some files when I try to open the file, I get the message cannot open the file, windows needs to know what program created the file.

    Any suggestions?

    Perhaps no program has been assigned to this file format and so you cannot open these files.
    I put t know which files you downloaded, but you can choose an application installed that can open these files.

    Right click the file and I have to then choose open with.
    Then, you could choose the program you want to use.

  • I changed my default program to open the .jar files in Java...

    I changed my default program to open the .jar files in Java... but now they all open as windows of command for half a second before disappearing (Windows 8 BTW) so how can I reset it to open it but it feels like it?

    Try the system restore to undo your mistake.

    How to repair the operating system and how to restore the configuration of the operating system to an earlier point in time in Windows Vista (7 or 8).

    See, control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Recovery\ Open System Restore

    Take a look at the control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations and set the correct program for a .jar file.

    Java uninstallation and reinstallation of Java could fix.

  • Get the Error Message When you try to reinstall Vista: Windows cannot open the required file: E:\Sources\install.wim

    I'm trying to reinstall windows vista for the following reasons:

    1. I have SQL Server 2008 installed on my computer.  I deleted some files a long time ago and it screwed something and I couldn't reinstall.
    2. I had partitioned my hard drive for vista half and half SuSE and I deleted who and when I did, I think I deleted another partition - my recovery partition (E:\?).
    3. I need to clean my laptop.

    When I try to start the installation of a disk and I put in my product key, I get the following error:

    Windows cannot open the required file E:\Sources\install.wim.  The file does not exist.  Make suure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation.  Error code: 0 x 80070002.

    Let me know if you have any ideas how I can fix it.  My next step was to recreate this E directory and download the install.wim file and re start the installation.  I could not find the file install.wim well.


    Hi Rob,

    I checked the link you provided.  What you downloaded was just the Vista recovery environment.  You cannot actually re - install Vista with that and if you blew your recovery partition unfortunately you may be out of luck.  You blew your partition containing Vista runs so the SFC will be of no help either.  I wish I had better news for you, but I don't see any way o get on without a Vista DVD.  I have good news for you if.  When you get your HP drive if you have problems with the installation, we will be able to help you with that.

    Take care and let us know if you need assistance when the disc arrives. Locutys of Borg

  • Windows cannot find the program to open the exe file

    I did the windows repair option by restarting then pressed f8 to get to come repair options. I did it to try to remove a number of problems of virus on my laptop. It seems that it has solved the problem, but now when I try to access one of my desktop icon shortcuts it indicates that windows cannot find the program to open the exe file. She does it with every shortcut. I can access the location of the program and then select open with and it will be opened in this way, but there is not and I have to select each time. Another option that works is a right-click on the icon and selecting 'start' and who will run the program properly. Other than simply double-click the icons automatically no longer works since I did this repair.

    Windows Startup Repair fixed my problem, but now my desktop icons not properly opens with double-click

    Hi jamesgillwn,

    1. when exactly you get this error message?
    2. what disc do you use to reinstall?
    3. What is the exact error that appears when you try to start?
    4. at what point of the installation you get the error message?

    After researching the error 0x8007000D code is essentially due to file corruption and a problem with the drive itself.

    First check if you have scratches or dust on the disc and clean the surface and try again.

    To check if the disk is wrong, you will need to copy the contents of the DVD to the hard drive and try to install using that.

    Try the steps from the following link:

    Error message when you try to install Windows Vista by using the DVD drive on the computer: "Windows cannot install required files".


    Note: When you perform the installation, you will lose the data, make sure that you need to backup your data before you perform the installation.
