Microsoft Windows Vista

Windows Vista is an operating system introduced in a number of variations by Microsoft for personal computers use, including home and business desktops, laptops, tablet PCs, and media center PCs. Before its announcement on July 22, 2005, Windows Vista was known by its codename "Longhorn". It contained a lot of changes and new features, as well as an updated graphical user interface and visual style dubbed Aero, a redesigned search function, multimedia tools including Windows DVD Maker, and redesigned networking, audio, print, and display sub-systems. Vista intended to enlarge the level of communication between machines on a home network, using peer-to-peer technology to make things easier in sharing files and media between computers and devices. Windows Vista included version 3.0 of the .NET Framework, permitting software developers to draft applications without traditional Windows APIs. Computers that are capable of running Windows Vista are classified as Vista Capable and Vista Premium Ready.

Microsoft Windows Help

Microsoft WinHelp is an owned format by Microsoft Corporation. It was designed for online help files that can be showed by the Microsoft Help browser winhelp.exe or winhlp32.exe. The file format is supported on Rich Text Format (RTF). It remained a well known Help platform from Windows 3.0 platform thru Windows XP. WinHelp was omitted in Windows Vista to discourage software developers from using the out of date format and encourage use of newer help formats. A WinHelp file has an .hlp extension. It can be accompanied by an optional table of contents (.cnt) file if the help developer created one. When Windows accesses a WinHelp file, it creates a .gid file in the same directory, having information about the .hlp file such as the window size and location. When the user clicks the "Find" tab and enables keyword indexing, Windows generates an index file with an .fts (full text search) extension.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .aml files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .aml. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
