    Default Error when opening attached .xar files

    I used to be able to click on an attached .xar file and have it open directly in Designer Pro.

    Lately I am getting two error messages which I will attempt to attach (given the problems with TG today I am not confident the attachments will load.

    If I opt to save the file then it opens fine in Designer Pro.

    I get the same if I download a xar file and try to open it by clicking on the file in the download folder. To get around it I have to drag the file onto Xara's title bar.

    Started occurring about 3 weeks ago. No idea why.

    I am not getting any type of failure. I think it may have something to do with Windows 10 and its auto update. I am still running Windows 7.

    Fully updated Win 10 here. No problems opening .xar or .web. I also have no issues with TG loading or performance.

    Australia's going for World domination by taking over the Xara Empire. By the time you realise what's happening it'll be too late and we'll have Koala's and Wombats lording over Silicon Valley.

    Apologies from the Wombat overlords. When trying to run directly from a download I do encounter the same error. I was downloading to the hard drive and then running when I smugly declared all was well.
