.asp File Extension

Developer: Microsoft Corporation
File type: Active Server Page File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .asp. Files with the file extension .asp can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .asp files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .asp file?

An Active Server Page file is a Web document that can contain HTML codes, text, graphics and XML content. This means these Active Server Page files are integrated with binary, text and XML-based formatting specifications. An Active Server Page file is generated by The Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Services) application that has been integrated with the Active Server Page engine add-on, and the Active Server Page engine is known as the first server-side scripting engine that was developed by Microsoft. These Active Server Page files are implemented with source code compilation and data encoding standards that are used by the Microsoft IIS application and the Active Server Page engine add-on to store its content in the ASP file format and to append the .asp extension to these Web files.

how to open a .asp file?

Launch a .asp file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .asp file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .asp files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .asp file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .asp file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .asp files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .asp. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
