Problem opening my PAF files in Windows 8

Problem opening my PAF files in Windows 8

My new PC is equipped with Windows 8. I transferred my 4 year old PAF files on my flash drive to my Documents Folder AND Dropbox but am unable to open them when I click on them. Is that normal with Windows 8 and is there a solution?

With thanks,

Neil

This is just a guess on my part, since I don't have a computer using Win 8, but try starting up PAF and then use the Open command from the File menu drop down to open the PAF file.

What may have happened is that Win 8 doesn't associate .paf files with the PAF program until you use the program to open a .paf file.

After opening a .paf file from within PAF, then perhaps the association will be made and you will be able to open the program by double clicking on the .paf file.
