You need to provide more detail. An application is a program. A program can have tens or even hundreds of files in them.

If you have a file that won't open because Windows doesn't have the ability you need to post the file extension or at least the type of file it is.

If it needs a program to open it, then it's not a stand alone file. Where did you get this file and what is it supposed to do?

Don't run any programs on the website given in #4 - it could cause new issues.

A file with the extension .application was a new one on me.
Usually files only have 3 letter extensions, or 4 at the most.

See this "for information only":

Don't use their file converter - we need more info before considering conversion.

Please answer the two questions in response #3 (second sentence).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I got the file off the internet. Its suppost to open a program. Also, could the .application file be a .app file?

If you can give a link to it and/or say what program it should open it might help.

No harm in changing the extension to .app but I doubt that will help. The description of app files sounds a lot different and I doubt you have a program onboard that opens those either.

I suspect it requires that a specialized program is on your computer. Maybe the originator of the file can advise.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Is the name of the program a secret, or can you tell us?
