Expression Off-line show file won't open on my Expression


I created or edited a show in Expression Offline. When I try to load it onto a console, I get a "file not found" error.


  1. Make sure that the file is indeed on the disk.
  2. Make sure that the disk is an IBM formatted, HD, 1.44 MB disk.
  3. Make sure that the file name of the show is EXP2.SHW
    1. Consoles in this family will not recognize any other showfile name.

This applies to any console in the Expression family: Expression 2, Expression 2x, Expression 3, Expression LPC, Insight, and all Express consoles.
