Unable to open .pdn files??

Recommended Posts

I am getting an error message each time I try and open a .pdn file. Is anyone else getting this problem? It’s only been happening since yesterday

I’ve tried my binoculars and a telescope, but I still can’t see your screen...

 

Could you post the exact error message you’re seeing?

 

Are you able to run Paint.NET?

Either your files are corrupt, or they are in another format and have the wrong file extension.

 

Is there an example file you are willing to share, so we can inspect it?
