How to open A5R file?

Step 1. Install Adobe Authorware

Programs to open A5R file

Remember to download programs supporting A5R files only from verified and safe sources. We suggest using the websites of software developers.

Step 2. Create association of Adobe Authorware with A5R files

If the application is or has been freshly installed, but the A5R file still does not use the Adobe Authorware program, it means no association. The association can be created using the drop-down list available by right-clicking on the file and selecting Properties. The window will show, among other things, the type of the file and the information by which the program is used to launch the file. Changes can be made using the "Change" button. It may happen that in the next window there will be no appropriate program - however, this can be corrected with the "Browse" option where you should manually indicate the program location. Checking the "Always use the selected program ..." box will permanently associate the A5R file with the Adobe Authorware program.

Step 3. Update Adobe Authorware to the latest version

The fault may also lie with the Adobe Authorware program, it is possible that Adobe Authorware Packaged Format Without Runtime requires a newer version of the program. This can be done using the application (if it provides such options) or from the Adobe Systems Incorporated website and install the latest version.

Step 4. Check for the following problems with the A5R file

The problem may also be with the file itself if the above steps don't work. File problems can be divided into the following:

The affected file may be 0 KB or smaller than expected. This suggests truncating the A5R file contents when downloading or copying. The file should be downloaded again, making sure that the process has finished correctly.
The most common cause here is computer viruses. A virus scan using an up-to-date antivirus program should fix the problem. Some antivirus vendors also provide free online scanners. However, it is important to scan the entire system, not only the file A5R or the program directory. As a result of the scan, sometimes it is not possible to recover A5R files, which are deleted if there is a backup of this file, then after restoring it, it must also be scanned.
Older version of A5R file may not always be supported by the latest software version. On their websites, developers usually offer free solutions to such problems, e.g. in the form of a conversion program or an older version of the program.
There can be many reasons for this. The repair method must be adapted to the type of file and damage. Sometimes the program itself has options to repair the most popular A5R file corruption. The easiest way to restore the file is from a backup or by contacting Adobe Systems Incorporated, but this one can be expensive. Not all damage can be reversed.
The program can also signal the fact of encryption. The encrypted file A5R except for the special designation, works normally, but only on the device where it was encrypted, before transferring it to another machine, decryption is required.
The operating system protects files in some locations (e.g. the root of the system partition) against unauthorized access. The problem is only writing to the file, not reading it. It is best to move A5R to a different directory.
This can happen on a file that does not support multiple access. Some file types can only be opened in one program at a time. Closing other programs should help. If the error persists after closing other programs, wait for a while. Some anti-virus or backup software may occupy the A5R file for a certain period of time. If the problem persists, restart the machine.
