Why is the "File Extension DSS" Error Happening?
The first time that you run a program it should automatically configure a number of settings on your computer. One of these settings is associating File Extension DSS with the appropriate program. However, a few different problems can occur. It is possible that the installer did not correctly associate File Extension DSS when it was run. It is also possible that it was told not to change file associations.
Additionally, another program at a later date might have cleared or changed the file associations, leading to File Extension DSS error. If the file type was not appropriately associated, it might be caused by the security settings on the computer being too high. No matter what caused the issue in the first place, it can be solved easily.
This guide will take you through a step by step process that will allow you to manually associate File Extension DSS with the appropriate program thus allowing the files to be opened.
