I wonder if anyone can help, autoroute 2007 is installed on various machines, group files cannot be opened by one particular machine with the message - The application cannot open this file. Consult Help for information about compatible formats.

This installation (uninstalled/reinstalled - makes no difference) is the same installation as the other machines and they do not have any problems accessing the group .axe files.

Any suggestions would be great as I cant find much info on autoroute.

The . Axe,File Association is probably corrupt.
Try reinstaling Autoroute 2007  to repair the correct WIndows Registry Keys for the File Association.

Thanks, I tried that, I've also been doing some more research and it turns out the file had permissions set against it to lock out unauthorised users. Shame the message didn't really lead me there in the first place.

Thanks for responding though.
