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

what is a .crev file?

CREV files are categorized as data files but are specifically known as Adobe Captivate commentable SWF files. These CREV files are appended with the .crev extension and are used by the Adobe Captivate 6 software from Adobe Systems. Version 6 of the Adobe Captivate software is a tool designed to offer users with a set of integrated functionalities useful for the development of digital materials embedded with interactive features. These digital materials are mostly used for eLearning platforms. Reviewable content consisting of comments about a particular SWF file can be entered and saved in the CREV format by other users of the Adobe Captivate 6 software, particularly via the Adobe Captivate Reviewer program included in this software. This provides other users with a means to inform the developers of SWF projects associated to particular CREV files comprised of these comments about their ideas for further improving and developing the content of those draft SWF materials. Microsoft Windows and Mac users can install the Adobe Captivate 6 software into their systems to access these functionalities.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .crev 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, .crev. 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.
