Q: HCR file type?

what program do you use to create or read a .hcr file?

Preferred Solution: HCR file type?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have recently bought a new mobile phone, made to specifications of Telstra here in Australia.

I have received photos from two different friends which are in the phone as "Multimedia message's"

The phone came with software (called Joinme, written by a local Melbourne company) for transferring photos to and from a PC, as well as backing up calendar, other message files etc.

As a beginner I have managed to transfer all Multimedia messages and Text messages from the phone to my PC, and appear on my PC with a file type '.sqm' (ie. for both the Multimedia and Text messages).

Windows cannot select a program to view the photos received as a Mulkimedia messages.

I rang the company who write the 'Joinme' and an unhelpful software support person told me to go and read their web site and anywhere the file type is a consequence of that used by the originating phones (my photos come from two different friends.

Can anyone help with a possible viewer for the '.sqm' files?

I dobut your gonna find a program to view them in Windows. SQM files are typically log files anyway. The program that makes them and your phone are you best if not only two ways to view them.

I need to change a zip file to an epub file. I have heard this can be done, but when I add the .epub after the file name, I notice the file is still actually zip type file when I right click properties. This is causing a problem when I try to open it in in different ebook reader programs.

I know there is a way to change a file's actual file type, but I don't know how. Perhaps there is a software or I need to go into the registry?

I can do this either with windows 7 or XP home, because I have two computers. So help on either operating system would be great?

As a related question, I am wondering does changing a file's icon type actually change the file type or just the icon?

A:How do I change a file's file type (not only file association)?

Hi awd and welcome to Seven Forums.

I take it that your zip file is an e-book. Changing the extension does nothing to change the format of the data. If you have need to convert an e-book from one format to another try Calibre. In addition to managing e-books it allows you to convert from one form to another. calibre - E-book management

More as an alternative to twiddling my thumbs than anything else, I tried to produce a batch file that would count up the number and size of files in a folder, as well as the number and size of files with each extension. Hence it would say how many word documents I have and how much space they're taking up, etc.

I've managed to get a vaguely working model, but the output formatting is terrible (I just wanted it to say X bytes in Y "Z" Files, none of that ugly dotted variable names) and I have failed to get it to equate .htm and .html, .jpg and .jpeg, etc.

You would be better off using third party software that already does this. Plenty of them out there.
I personally would check the extension of each file using the cmd extensions of a for loop. then do an if statement for each file type you want to keep track of. then use a call statement to branch to a function that adds up the file sizes and number of files.

I downloaded a zip file that contains three executable .JAR program files and 2 zipped .tar.tar files. i have two laptops - one has only win zip installed and another one has both winrar and win zip. When i open this zip file in the laptop which does not have winrar, i can see the .jar files in the win zip window and their file type shows as executable jar file. However the .tar files are still zipped so i double click on them and I get the error "Error reading header after processing 0 entries". Now, when I try to open the original zip file on the laptop that has both winrar and win zip, I can see the two .tar files (File type: TAR file) however, the .jar files' file type changes to "WinRAR archive" and even the icon against the files changes from the typical .jar icon (Java cup inside a rectangle) to WinRar icon (which looks like 3 colorful books on top of each other).

Hello Everyone,

I have kind of an odd question, I have been looking into changing file type icons when I came across an interesting conflict.
I would like to be able to change the file type icon for all .exe files to the same file type icon within a file explorer. If you were to try to do this, all icons that are associated with each .exe program becomes the same icon no matter where they are located.

The thing is that usually when I am in a file explorer the .exe files are installers and when I have .exe files in places like on my desktop, in the start menu, and in the taskbar, they are for launching already installed programs.

Can anyone think of a possibly way that could solve this conflict easily with some kind of setting or software.

I thought maybe something with shortcuts but that turned out to not work for me.
I also believe that .ico icon files have multiple sizes within them but I don't think there would be a realistic way to edit each of them for all the programs installed.

Has anyone else ever tried something like this? or have any solutions that I am not aware of?
Thank You

A:Changing .exe File Type Icons In File Explorer But Nowhere Else

File Explorer is on Windows 8/8.1, renamed from Windows Explorer on Windows 7 back to Windows95/Windows NT4.

Usually an .exe file for running a program will have its own icon, right-click a Shortcut, Properties, Change Icon to see what the .exe file has in it. Some programs may have a separate icon in their Folder in C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86). If no icons are found Windows will put up a panel with a number of choices but they are more generic, mostly for Windows things.

Installable .exe files will have more of a generic icon and are of only a few types.

I?ve got a file that seems to exist, but I can?t delete. I created it as a.txt with a long-ish file name (76 chars) as a reminder, but it now has no extension & is zero bytes. When I try & delete it I get the msg: ?Cannot delete ?. Cannot find the specified file?. I can?t open it and the properties doesn?t give me much info.

It?s on a drive (h:) that?s sync?d to a network and only appears when I?m not connected to the network. This makes it difficult to use things like ccleaner, deletefxpfiles, chkdsk etc.

I?ve tried deleting it from a command line (tells me it doesn't exist) in safe cmd mode (couldn't log on) deleting the folder and a bunch of other things ? but no joy.

Any ideas?

I work with film editing and need to have several media players. I wonder if it is possible to associate file type to different programs, depending on the file path. I.e. every file in path E:\ is opened in program1 by default, and program2 takes care of the rest of the paths. Today I use right click and "open with", which gets kind of annoying.

Just found out another strange thing happing on my computer. Don't know if it's suppose to do this or not, but I though see what everyone here had to say.

When I click on download links on the internet to download mp3 files, the save as box pops up, but it saves it as an MPEG instead, with no option for mp3. The linked file appears as an mp3 file on the info bar. How come it doesn't automatically save it as an mp3.

I could probably choose 'All file types' and type '.mp3' at the end of the file and then choose save, couldn't I. But, I want it to come up as an mp3 by default.

What's the deal?

BTW, this isn't in the wrong forum is it? I didn't know where to put it.

A:File formats-saving as another file type


Is it definatly a mp3? Sometimes, sites can offer links that are in the form of another file extension. Try to click one in www.mp3.com, or is this where you're getting them from?

Have you got mp3 associated with Windows Media Player? Open up the player.

View | Options. Formats. Are all the boxes ticked? If not, tick them.

I think really, that it may be just down to the site. Can you tell me the name of one of the sites, and I'll have a look?

These files are part of an archive that have been split up. I use WinRar to extract the contents of split archives. Just right click the first file of the archive (.001) and select open with and select WinRar from the list of programs. When WinRar opens you then need to extract the contents to the location of your choice. Every archive I've ever extracted using this method has resulted in a BIN and ISO file that can be burned using Nero or other CD buring software. I'm not sure if Winzip will work but you can give it a shot.

A few years ago I purchased a program called "The Jazz Pianist" and at that time I had an early version of Windows. I lost track of the file on changing computers (and to XP) but I find I have the two original floppy disks with this title on and I would dearly like to run it however most of the files have extensions MI$ or DK.and significant file (perhaps) are INSTALL (no file extension but properties show it is a BIN file) and JAZZPIAN.EX$ . The instruction on the Floppies says "Type Install from windows". I have tried clicking on these but they obviously need something more. I have also tried going to Command Line, changing to the CD drive where I have burnt all the files (see below) and typing "Install" but this is not recognised.

Two other points: I have tried to find the program again on the Net as I would buy it again if I could but I can't.

Also my floppydrive has packed up (actually I get the eroor message "insert disk in drive" which seems to be a common error) so using another computer I have copied all the files onto a CD,

I can't attach a file as the extension is not of the type permitted as an attachment.

Is there anyway I can get this program to run?

I'm having a problem where I'm unable to choose "Save as type: All files", in order to change the format of a document using a word processor. I do not have Microsoft Word, but I've tried this with both WordPad and LiberOffice Writer and it isn't working. I'm trying to change a .odt-extension to .pdf. I've never ran into this type of problem before. Does anyone know why this is happening and whether there is something that I can do about it?

A:Need help changing file type

You cannot save a document as PDF simply by changing the file extension! If you change the extension of for instance a LibreOffice .odt file to .pdf, it's still an ODT document for LibreOffice, not a PDF file. The same in WordPad; whatever extension you give to your document, it's still a WordPad document, not a PDF file.

Looking the Save As options in LibreOffice, it seems not to have the PDF available as is in for instance Microsoft Word. However, Windows 10 gives you an easy workaround: Print to PDF.

You can Print to PDF from every application capable to print. Choosing this option will naturally not send anything to a local printer, in fact you don't even have to have a printer installed in order to be able to print to PDF. Printing to PDF simply saves a local copy of your document in PDF file format.

Hey guys,
I am using winfax to receive faxes and I want to send those fax copies to my colleagues via MS Outlook. The problem is that the winfax file extension is only meant for Winfax. I need to make the faxes viewable under MS Outlook as an attachment like jpg/bmp. Any ideas?


I am here to stay!!

A:winfax pro 9.0 - file type

What's the file extension on the fax? You could make a screen capture of it. Open the fax and then hit the print screen key. Then open windows paint and click on edit--paste to paste the image into it. Then click file--save as and save it as a .jpeg. Then open that file into a photo editor such as Irfanview (which is free) and crop it to how you want it to look and then resave it. The only problem with that is you may have to make more than one screen capture to get an image of the entire fax if it's not all shown on screen when you hit the print screen key. You can however make two images and then paste the two together and resave them as one in virtually any photo editor. The reason I asked for the file extension is that maybe Irfanview can open it. If that's the case then you can resave it as a .jpeg in that program.

If you want a screen capture program that can scroll to capture the entire screen then use Snagit. It's the only one I know of that can scroll and capture the whole screen but it's not free.
