Embroidery design files now showing up as .bin

I have many embroidery design files that were originally .vp3 (format used by my embroidery sewing machine and software) that have somehow converted to and are showing up as .bin files. I have no idea how this happened and my embroidery software can no longer open or read these files. Any suggestions on how to change them back or how they converted to .bin?

Software/Hardware used:
Viking 4D Pro & Windows 7

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I think this is a proprietary software question. Maybe ask at

    You can also go in and change the file extension back to vp3 from bin in folder where they are stored, but I would also consult with the Viking people first about the software.

    Was any new software loaded? That may have changed the file associations or they are using the same file extensions for their application. Just an FYI you can name a file with any extension but you will most likely get a warning that the file may become unusable.
