Alteryx Tool Installer Issue (.yxi file type)

5 - Atom



I'm having an issue in regard to a .yxi file type. The issues are outlined below:


1. My laptop is not recognizing that it is an Alteryx tool installer file. Instead in the file explorer, the icon is just the normal blue Alteryx icon instead of the orange installer icon.

2. When I double click on the .yxi file, I get the following error message: " 'sample.yxi' is not a supported install type."


Any help on this error, would be greatly appreciated!

Have you tried opening Alteryx Designer, then go to File --> Open --> select the .yxi file?
