If it says it is protected, then you can probably not get
into it. dir
files are not protected. What probably happened is that
protected the file (made it dxr or dcr) and then renamed it
.dir. If you do not have access to the actual unprotected
then you will most likely not be able to get into it. You can
get some of the assets out of it by opening it as a MIAW, but
most likely not be able to get any scripts.
