    Opening a wbf file

    When I try to open a wbf file, I get the following message:

    This file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action. Please install an app or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Apps Setting page.

    I have searched for apps but get confused with all the options available. Is there an app someone can recommend?

    Sorry if I posted this to a wrong category but I was not sure where it should go....

    PowerPoint file crashes PowerPoint upon opening

    since this happens in some of the computers only, suggest that you open the file on working computer and copy everything and paste to a new powerpoint file.
    most of the time it works to me. *Smile Opening a wbf file :)
