What is CPGZ file?

A .CPGZ file is a compressed archive file that combines both the gzip format and the Copy In, Copy Out (CPIO) archive format. The CPGZ file containing the compressed zip file is used to save the disk space while storing the technical documents, software programs, movies, and other files. Further, the CPGZ file is supported on the UNIX based systems, such as the Linux and the Mac OS X. The CPGZ file can be extracted using the ditto command line program supported on the Linux and the Mac OS X.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the CPGZ file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the CPGZ file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the CPGZ file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the CPGZ file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the CPGZ file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
