  • [SOLVED] File extensions?

    Hi All,

    Looking through my Vienna sample libraries I notice that some have the .dat file extension & some others have the .cab file extension.

    Is this usual, does anybody know please?

    Many thanks.


  • Hi, 

    *.cab files are the installation files (highly compressed), which are turned into *.dat files after installation. 

    You can delete alle *.cab files, once the installation is done (you always have access to those installation files). 

    Best, 
    Paul

  • Ahh! Thank you Paul.

    I deleted the .cab files after the .dat files were installed. All is well now!

    Very helpful advice - as always. I'm very grateful.

    Many thanks.
