    Trouble Opening PNGs - Unknown file type

      I found this topic already on this board (a post from 2002) but there was no usable answer.

      I am using Fireworks 8 ( on Windows. I have troubles opening old pngs I created. When opening some files I get the error message "unknown file type".

      The file can be opened via photoshop or irfanview, but all data is flat on only one layer - so this is not a solution.

      It seems that the file is damaged - rebuilding the whole file would be a lot of work. This problems occurs from time to time with different pngs.

      All files are saved on a server via our network. But this problem occurs only with pngs and no other file-types, so I don't think that this is a network problem.

      Thanks in advance, Malte
