Operating system: Windows Vista home premium.
I "am" on 'Inbox-Windows Live Mail'.
1) I click the "Attachment" icon.
2) A pop-up window appears:
"Do you want to open this file?", Name:ATT00031.dat Type:DAT File
I click "open"
3) A pop-up window appears:
"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel."
I click "OK"
4) I am back on 'Inbox-Windows Live Mail'.

Question: How do I create an association to open this file.

When you select a program to open it with, you check the box that says "always use the selected program to open this type of file?

Hi and welcome.


I have seen .dat files come from folks who send emails from Mac operating systems. One file is good to open, the other is a .dat file.
