» EXE files allow users to launch programs without needing additional software on the user's computer special software. The exe file is one of the most useful types of files precisely because it runs programs; however, it can be used as a delivery system for viruses or other malicious programs.Viruses(Exploit:Win32/CVE-2009-0561.A) often reside to .exe files, which are then re-named to resemble common software packages.

    How do you associate CRD files with cardfile.exe? Easy. Right click any of your CRD files, select Properties. On the General tab, there is an item labeled: "Opens with:". There is a "CHANGE" button to the right of that which, when clicked, takes you to a list of applications from which you can choose. You can have your system open CRD files with whatever application you choose but CRD files are native to cardfile.exe so that would be your best choice.

    It works on my Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

    Apparently the cardfile.hlp is no longer needed as I only downloaded the exe and it worked. The .zip is the same thing just zipped up.

    I opened and unzipped the file. I then saved dragged the new (32) bit cardfile.exe to a new Windows folder that I had created. I copied my cardfiles.crd from my Windows XP (32) bit laptop to a pocket drive and dragged them from that into the new folder in Windows 7.

    I then followed all your instructions at top above and Cardfile.crd works magnificently and flawlessly so far. I created my desktop shortcuts and rebooted as a sanity check and it is still all working fine. I also made my OLD Windows 3.1 (16 BIT) CARDFILE.EXE work on my 32 bit Laptop and Windows XP using the older Windows Explorer and OPTIONS - file association method.

    So it appears we have now revived our trusty CARDFILE.EXE (16) bit (32) bit and now (64) bit Windows 7 compatibility. I have not loaded it on our other (32) Bit VISTA laptop yet but think it will work smoothly also.

    I have worked in windows apps before 3.1 - XP and now was forced to get Windows 7. Windows 7 is by far the worst operating system hands down. Its like Microsoft went back to the dark ages AND locked users out of everything. Nothing works with anything and too many limitations and "user friendly" is not in the vocab of Win 7- I’ve been using my new hard drive for 10 weeks and I simply hate it!

JENNIFER PAGE replied on January 26, 2013 : » I bought the full version and imported the cardfile (CRDS) IT Works well with many editing options including storing pictures. but after a while I started having problems where it would crash or when you went to reopen it the message given was invalid file. To get round that (1) you have to delete the invalid file. (2) make a copy of the backup......... it makes a copy every time you close down. (3) rename the copy to whatever you have called your file and change the extension to azz. Unfortunately to stop this happening every time you have to save the file by going Save as and when it tells you you are about to overwrite the file proceed and over write it. when you close the file it sometimes asks you again do you want to Save. click no because if you save after carrying out a Save As it re-scrambles the file.

    It is good but does have problems especially when the file gets large mine is 6.87 megabyte
