How to open QPM file?

An often recurring problem with Quick Pallet Maker Input Data is that QPM is not associated with the correct program file. This causes the file QPM to open by system applications not designed for this purpose, or to display a message that there is no associated program. This can be quickly resolved by following the instructions below.

The first thing you should do is just "doubleclick" on the QPM file icon you want to open. If the operating system has an appropriate application to support it and there is also an association between the file and the program, the file should be opened.

Step 1. Install Quick Pallet Maker

In this case, you should first verify that the Quick Pallet Maker application is installed on the computer. To do this, enter the name Quick Pallet Maker into the system search engine. In the absence of an appropriate program, its installation in the vast majority of cases will fix the problem. Later in this article you will find a list of programs that can open QPM files.

Programs to open QPM file

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

Step 2. Create association of Quick Pallet Maker with QPM files

If the application is or has been freshly installed, but the QPM file still does not use the Quick Pallet Maker 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. Using the "Change" button we can select the desired program. If there is no software on the list, simply select "Browse" and manually select the directory where the application is installed. However, it is important to check the "Always use the selected program ..." box, this will allow you to permanently associate the QPM file with the Quick Pallet Maker application.

Step 3. Update Quick Pallet Maker to the latest version

The fault may also lie with the Quick Pallet Maker program, it is possible that Quick Pallet Maker Input Data requires a newer version of the program. Some applications allow you to update from the program level, and for others you need to download the installer from the Koona Software page and install.

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

If the above steps do not help, you can assume that the file itself is not correct. File problems can be divided into the following:

The affected file may be 0 KB or smaller than expected. Usually this applies to QPM files downloaded from the Internet in case the download did not finish properly. The only repair option is to download the file again.
The most common cause here is computer viruses. Perform a virus scan using available and up-to-date anti-virus software. If this is not possible, you can use the online scanner. The scan should cover the entire computer, not only the QPM file that we want to open. As a result of the scan, sometimes it is not possible to recover QPM 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 QPM file. These problems are known and are often very easy to fix using the software developers's website.
The file may be corrupted in a number of ways. The repair method must be adapted to the type of file and damage. Some programs offer the ability to automatically repair QPM file corruption. The easiest way to restore the file is from a backup or by contacting Koona Software, but this one can be expensive. Not all damage can be reversed.
The program can also signal the fact of encryption. The encrypted QPM files can be used by the device on which they were encrypted, on any other device it is required to have the appropriate cryptographic key and decrypt the file before its recovery.
The operating system protects files in some locations (e.g. the root of the system partition) against unauthorized access. These directories are write-protected to them and it's very hard to fix this problem. Copying the QPM file to another location will fix the problem.
This problem usually affects more complex files. In this case, the QPM file is blocked by the first application to open it. Closing other programs should help. If the error persists after closing other programs, wait for a while. However, some background programs may block the QPM file while scanning. If this does not work either, restart the device.
