Is this something that just started?  For example, you could open files as expected yesterday and today you're encountering the issue?

The first thing that I can think of is that you might be selecting a shortcut that's no longer linked to the original file, but that's just a guess.

Do other applications open the files?  For example, can you open JPEG files in a web browser or Windows Photo Viewer (if on Windows) or Apple Preview (if on Mac)?

We need more information. Mac or Windows? How are you trying to open these files (File->Open, From Bridge or Lightroom, double-click, Recent Items?) and where are they located? What has changed on your computer since it last worked? Is this all files that fail or just some?
