    Yeah, well, you didn't specify that it was for WINDOWS 7 ONLY.

    The 3DS file extension works fine in Windows 10, why wouldn't this?

    It's not ONLY FOR win7, if you read link that i give you...
    Because it uses exe+dll and 3ds integrated straight in registry, that's different
    It's works fine in Windows 10 (i have it in main pc) and in Windows 8 too

    OK.... then why would you say that "I must have not Windows 7"? That's implying that it requires Win 7.

    Windows 10, x64. I don't see what the space in folder names has to do with it. And what am I supposed to associate the files with? There's nothing that opens them other than various utilities.

    \Installed .Net
    \After install you was need to reboot your PC
    If all of this Ok, then reinstall main dll's like net framework
    Search wit regedit for .vpk (Maybe in windows you still have before associated it with .vpk)
    What's more... Hmm... Try download rar of this program and in settings unblock it

    .Net 4.5 is included with Windows 10.
    Rebooted several times since installing Windows 10.
    Turns out, 7-zip was registered to open it, though it's not a file association. Hmmm. Weird.
