Step 4. Check for the following problems with the FLH 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 FLH file may be unusually small compared to the original file. This is most often caused by a problem while downloading the FLH file. The only repair option is to download the file again.
The operating system may be infected with a computer virus. A virus scan using an up-to-date antivirus program should fix the problem. Some antivirus vendors also provide free online scanners. For the best results, we will scan the entire operating system, not just our FLH file. Sometimes virus-infected FLH files cannot be recovered, so make a backup in advance.
This can happen especially when the program is dynamically developed and the structure of the FLH files changes over time. These problems are known and are often very easy to fix using the software developers's website.
There can be many reasons for the failure. The repair method must be adapted to the type of file and damage. Some programs offer the ability to automatically repair FLH file corruption. You can restore the file from a backup or use N/A help.
The program indicates that the file is encrypted or corrupted. The encrypted FLH files cannot be played on other computers than the one on which they were encrypted, they must be decrypted before using on another device.
Some operating systems do not allow file operations in certain locations, eg in system directories or directly on the system drive. While there is usually no problem reading such a file, it may not be possible to save it. Copying the FLH file to another location will fix the problem.
This can happen on a file that does not support multiple access. In this case, the FLH file is blocked by the first application to open it. Just close unnecessary programs. Sometimes you have to wait for the session to the file FLH to close. However, some background programs may block the FLH file while scanning. If this does not work either, restart the device.
