PLA file description

A .PLA file is a 3D project archive that is created with architectural CAD (ArchiCAD) software. The PLA files are similar to the PLN files; however, the PLA files also include the CAD library parts, background information, and the associated information. The PLA files are referenced by the software, which can be used to collaborate and share the architectural design with multiple stakeholders. The PLA files integrate seamlessly with the Graphisoft’s cloud storage solution, and the PLA files can be recovered by a professional data recovery software solution called the Disk Drill software.

What else may cause problems?
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the PLA file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the PLA 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 PLA 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 PLA file should be solved forever.
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 PLA file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
