.ctv File Extension

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

what is a .ctv file?

CTV files are appended with the .ctv extension and are specifically known as Citavi project files. Swiss Academic Software developed the CTV format for data files used by the Citavi application. Data files are classified as files that contain data stored by a user or an associated application, and these pieces of data are referenced by certain programs when a user requests access to the content of these files. The Citavi software can be used to create projects that will later be saved in the CTV format. Existing CTV project files can also be opened and edited with this application. The Citavi program is classified as Windows reference management software, and the data stored in these CTV files includes citation details associated to relevant information sources used by the author of the CTV project. A user may also enter notes or comments into a CTV file. Users of computers running on Microsoft Windows-based systems can install the Citavi software to start authoring, opening and editing the content of these CTV files.

how to open a .ctv file?

Launch a .ctv 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 .ctv 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 .ctv files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .ctv file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .ctv file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

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