Question

I have Roxio NXT Pro 2 installed on a new Dell XPS 8700 running Windows 8. I noted that when I save a slideshow or video project it is given a file extension of .dmss or .dmsm. When I try to open those files from Roxio "File, Open" menu the program looks for .rox or .roxio files. The only way I can open projects is to go to the file in Windows explorer, right click and open with Roxio.

 

Is there a setting in Roxio that can change this awkward workaround?

 

Thanks!

Not awkward if you use the program as intended...

 

Those are Project Files for specific applications within the Suite.

 

dmss = SlideShow Assistant

dmsm = VideoWave

dmsd = MyDVD

rox = Burn Data Disc

 

Two ways to go then. First is to Open the Specific Application, then File Open within the application.

 

Second way is to take advantage of the extension as it is registered within Windows, so double clicking the file name or right clicking on it and selecting Open will cause the parent application to open with that file loaded.

 

There are a couple of variations even then but this is the way most suites are written and behave ;)

In what program from NXT2 are you trying to open those dmss or dmsm files? Only Videowave or myDVD will open those project files.

 

BTW, what you call an "awkward workaround" is how I usually open Roxio project files.
