Files that should open as apps just simple text files
« on: August 01, 2018, 08:54:11 PM »
this is the big issue for me. Di I have to download apps from within os9?
I have a bunch of files I want to open with the app that created them, but either the app is a simple text file or the files supposed to open with the app are one;y sen as simple text, if tried filetype conversion and its not that reliable

you probably need to de-convert from macbinary?
is it a .bin file?
you are going to have to be more specific than that..

ie: what computer? what os? what files?
