The standard file extension for for the Gerber Format is .GBR. It is an open 2D bi-level vector image format. It is the defacto standard that has been utilized by the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) industry program to define the printed circuit board images such as drill holes, legend, solder mask, copper layers, etc.
Gerber Systems Corp originally developed the .GBR file format. This was one of the divisions of the Gerber Scientific which was established by Joseph Gerber. Now, Ucamco owns the Gerber file extension, as it acquired Barco ETS, which was formerly acquired Gerber Systems Corp. Several revisions have been made to the file extension from time to time.

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the GBR file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the GBR 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 GBR 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 GBR 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 GBR file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
