ok ... that's right.
you have to click on opne
than you check "select from list.."
in the next screen you have to search for your old application.
Chech the box, "always open with"
and klick OK

What happens if you try to open the file in wordpad or Notepad? Most info states that it is either an .xml type file or a gamer file. If xml, Notepad should work. If gamer, then it will be formatted specifically for the game. Can you post the file here?

Are you trying to open the xpx file within your application or are you trying to open it by double click in windows explorer?

There  is no option to open with.. when I right click on it.  It's an attachment and everything I've tried nothing  seems to work.  No, notepad will not open without the open with option.

Save the attachment to a folder on your PC and then you can right click an you will get the option for OPEN WITH.

Opening within your application works ?

I'm willing to bet it is an offshoot of xml that you should be able to open once it is saved. If you still do not get an "open with" option, simply open Notepad or Wordpad, and use the File>Open command from within it.

Using a notepad or wordpad changes the file ext and that give garblish unreadable text

Can you open that file from within your application?
Is there a command like "OPEN" in Word or Excel?

I ran across this issue as well.  For me, it was associated with a program called Accessible FormNet - VisualFill.  The program typically is associated with opening .xpw extensions but also opens .xpx extensions as well.  Here is a link to the program vendors website - http://www.interconweb.com/software/afn/default.asp.  You will need to send their support team an email their website does not have a link to download their viewer.
