Universal Viewer error message while opening zipped folder

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

I installed Universal Viewer to view all the excel, word or PDF documents without installing MS office. I am totally happy with Universal viewer since it lets me view any multimedia files , even without any codec’s installed.

I have a zip folder in which I have a few word documents, excel documents which I am trying to open with the Universal viewer and I get an error message:

Universal Viewer

File not found: “L:XFERETC2OLDlocate32-

I am sure there are no issues with the zip file, since I am able to successfully open the documents with other application.

Appreciate your help.

It seems like your problem is not the universal viewer software but the location of your zipped file itself. You might be trying to open you files inside the zipped file but unfortunately, the connection to the USB might be loose or you have kicked it and the USB was out of place during opening.

I suggest you copy and paste your zipped in your desktop or anywhere as long as it is in your C: drive. Unzipped the file first or you can directly open it from your zip file while creating a temporary file on your C:.

Try this solution I'm sure it will work. Try your other document that is not in zip file to prove what I'm saying is true.
