Are you trying to open the application or are you trying to ou open a file you have saved previously?

It sounds like Windows has lost the file association with PhotoVcarve. You can use the popup window to navigate to the .exe file that runs PhotoVcarve or just re-install the program.

If you open it directly from the program rather than a file you should be able to load the file from there. If your shortcut is set to a file rather than the program the original program link should be on the Start Menu.
