First - the PACK file may be incorrectly linked (associated) with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this link by yourself. To do this, right-click on the PACK file # that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed.

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