What is EMZ file?

Files with the .EMZ extension contain vector graphics stored in the EMF format (Windows Enhanced Metafile), compressed with the GZIP algorithm. This format is used to store a remote version of an image, assumedly independent from a platform. It defines a file with sequential entries, which in order to display – render an image, are parsed and executed on the target device.

Additional information

Specification of the format can be found on Microsoft web sites for developers, it was created in the year 1993, for the 32-bit Windows platform, as an extension of functionality of WMF files (Windows Metafile). EMZ files can be used to create graphic drivers for printers.

After this operation, the problems with opening the EMZ 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 EMZ file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
