Because ".tpl" is a file extension that the client who sent you the
file made up, not
a valid extension that neither the OS or any program know anything about.

Either rename it with an .FM extension or use the Folder control panel
in Windows to map .tpl to FM (not really a great idea if you think you
may ever get other files with that extension).
