Step 4. Check for the following problems with the KMV file
Of course, it may happen that despite the above steps, the file still does not work. File problems can be divided into the following:
The affected file may be 0 KB or smaller than expected. This suggests truncating the KMV file contents when downloading or copying. Downloading the file again should fix the problem.
The most common cause here is computer viruses. Perform a virus scan using available and up-to-date anti-virus software. Some antivirus vendors also provide free online scanners. However, it is important to scan the entire system, not only the file KMV or the program directory. As a result of the scan, sometimes it is not possible to recover KMV files, which are deleted if there is a backup of this file, then after restoring it, it must also be scanned.
A typical compatibility error - the program does not support the older version of the KMV file. Help should be sought from the software developer, as they usually recommend using free file converters or installing an older version of the program.
There can be many reasons for this. Depending on the type of file, it is necessary to repair it accordingly. Sometimes the program itself has options to repair the most popular KMV file corruption. The easiest way is to restore the file from a backup, if there is one, or contact N/A
The program indicates that the file is encrypted or corrupted. The encrypted KMV 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. The problem is only writing to the file, not reading it. It is best to move KMV to a different directory.
This problem usually affects more complex files. In this case, the KMV 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 KMV to close. Some anti-virus or backup software may occupy the KMV file for a certain period of time. If this does not work either, restart the device.
