Open saved job files
A job file (.xej) is an XML description of all the settings in a job, in addition to a reference to the source media files. If you open a job file, the source media files must be in the location specified in the job file.
A job file differs from a saved profile in that a profile contains only saved settings, not a reference to an original file. Therefore, you can apply a saved profile to any media source in Microsoft Expression Encoder. A saved job file is self-contained, so you cannot apply it to another source.
You can save job files from Expression Encoder. For more information, see Save job files.
To open a job file
On the File menu, click Open Job.
Browse to the location of the job file, and then click Open.
