"I think I am probably slow to understand what you are saying

Note that version 9? It's the latest.

this did not help much
thanks though
Again: The file was sent as an email attachment from my university professor. Its difficult to get him now and i'm in a hurry. Thats why I want to get the file open
I read in an article just now while searchin the web, that this is an indication of a damaged email attachment.
I also read one that said to use binhex to convert the file but it does not work

Any suggestions
Thanks

If it isn't WMP9 or Windows Model 3D...

then what, if anything, did your professor say in the email about the attachment?

It may be time to talk to him. If it is damaged, there isn't much we can do.
