    Howdy all! Got a problem I need help with.

    I've used the National Geographic TOPO! software for a while now. A few nights ago I was creating maps for a trip, saving these files, and, doing general stuff with the program.

    After a bit, I go to open a file I had created a little before, and, when it opens, the program just quits and the computer gives me the ole "do I want to submit a report to apple?" prompt.

    No biggie, I think. Safari does that every now and then. So, I click the file again and same thing happens. I click another file and same thing.

    Now I'm worried. I can't open any files I've created with the mapping software.

    I move these files to my laptop with the same program. They all open fine. Big relief, but now I can't work on these maps on my main computer!

    So, I delete everything related to the program(except for my files!), and reinstall the program. Still no luck.

    I repair permissions. Still no luck.

    I create another user. Still no luck. So my problem is system wide.

    Now, I'm at a stand still. I don't really want to wipe my computer clean and start over.

    Any suggestions?

    Have you ever opened those files on that computer after you saved them?

    No. After I create the files, I'm never able to open them again.

    Have you checked if your computer is able to open the files and what are they saved as?

    After I create a map and save it, then close the program, and then go back and try to reopen the map I just created with the program that just created it, the program will quit.

    The file type is a .tpo
