.dcl File Extension

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

what is a .dcl file?

AutoCAD dialog definition files are classified as settings files, and these are saved in the DCL format. These DCL files are appended with the .dcl extension and are mainly used by the AutoCAD 2013 software as reference data files for dialogue definitions entered by the authors of AutoCAD 2013 projects associated to the DCL files. Autodesk developed the DCL format and the AutoCAD 2013 software as an application classified as CAD design and documentation software. The content of these DCL files include settings for dialogue boxes, and these are the titles of each data field, lists of items and buttons used in these dialogue boxes. Plain text encoding specifications are implemented into these DCL files and are also integrated with the Dialogue Control Language programming language that was developed by Autodesk. The AutoCAD 2013 software can be installed by users of Microsoft Windows-based computers to implement support into their systems for these DCL files as well as to access the features available in this program to create and edit AutoCAD 2013 design projects.

how to open a .dcl file?

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

a word of warning

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