We in Europe have trouble opening the cut files which are made by American designers in the cricut designstudio. My husband is an IT professional and he found the problem which is easy to solve.
In America, all files are saved with the American notation of the date inside the file. For example: 29 july 2008 = 07/29/2008. In Europe the computers register this date as 29-07-2008. So when we try to open a cutfile with the American date in it, it won’t open.
To fix that you do the following:
Download Hex editor of:
Install this program on your PC and open it.
Open the cutfile in this program and at the right side of the screen somewhere close to the top, you see the date. (I made it pink in the picture) If it has for example the date 07/29/2008 change the 29 in whatever month you want from 1-12. Then save it and you can open your file in cricut design studio.
If you have trouble understanding this go to Susan Bluerobot for a tutorial about this.
