A .cpt file is a Macintosh file compressed with CompactPro. I know it
can be expanded on a Mac with Stuffit Expander. I do not know what
Windows uses to unstuff or expand Mac archives. If you cannot handle it
with your Windows app, you might send it to someone on a Mac who should
be able to expand and then compress it again in a more compatible
format. If you continue to have difficulties, send the file to me
offlist and I can *probably* help.

I don't believe CompactPro is very common among Mac users.
Unfortunately, you are not in a position to tell that to your
prospective clients. :-)
