Notes about the MUF file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The MUF file type is primarily associated with 'Alpha Five' by Alpha Software, Inc.. MUF files are temporary files that Alpha Five creates to control the number of people who can concurrently open a database. If a user has a 3 user a5 license, then: when person 1 opens the database, the .MUF file with the same name as the .ADB file is created and a count of 1 is recorded in the .MUF file. When person 2 opens, the count in the .MUF file is increased to 2. When person 3 opens, the count in the .MUF file is increased to 3. When person 4 tries to open the count in the .MUF file would exceed the number of licenses, so person 4 gets an error message. When person 3 closes, the count in the .MUF file is reduced to 2 and person 4 could open. When all users close the count in the MUF file is 0 and the .MUF file is deleted by Alpha Five. If a crash occurs the .MUF file may be left on disk, preventing other users from accessing the application. In this case all users should exit Alpha Five and the MUF should be manually deleted.
