    From what I can find, *.atc files are tool palette definition files. AutoCad creates them when a new tool palette is created by the user. The *.atc file is the result, not the cause. One cannot just open or import a random *.atc file.
    The S197 gen Ford Mustang, and the F-4 Phantom both prove the same theory. "With enough power applied, a school bus will fly."

    If you need to transfer palettes between computers, then you need to export and then import using the palette customisation dialogue box this uses a file with the extension *.xtp as Dana W has pointed out the *.atc files are Autocad system files.
    I've just been down graded from 2012LT to full Autocad 2017. I WANT LT BACK

    Just add the folder location to Options>Files>Tool Palletes File Locations. If not from the same AutoCAD Version, they may not work correctly.
