    right click on the file in documents the click properties....you may need to change the file type.

    dont ask..i dont know how.

    right click as above but in the 'open with' box try opening with a different program....Adobe reader, wordpad etc

    Think this is a RAR file and you need WinRAR to open it. I did a quick google search and came up with Motorhome Fun file download with a RAR file posted by Patrick.
    Hope this helps

    Hi

    This is an Autoroute file, if you double click it should unzip it, when you click on the unzipped file it should then launch Autoroute with the route on the map

    If you don't have Autoroute it's no use to you
