Try Adobe Acrobat 6.0 or one of the later Readers. File Extension Info. Atari also used it for a disk image. Might ask the person what program they used to make it.

At this point it may be, but why can't you ask the person who sent it to you, what program created it? Adobe Reader, any version, may not be the right one. There were several listings for where that extension was used at one time. Maybe someone else has a suggestion on programs that may open this file.

Was it sent as an email attachment or what?

Thanks, Tim, for posting back. That was one of the applications listed on the page for the File Extension Details I gave you under MIME types.

Glad you found the right one.
