.hki1 File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: WinHKI HKI1 Archive File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .hki1. Files with the file extension .hki1 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .hki1 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .hki1 file?

A WinHKI HKI1 archive file is integrated with compression specifications developed for a more efficient way to compress and encode multimedia files like digital music tracks, video content and high quality digital images. These compression standards implemented into a WinHKI HKI1 archive file are proprietary to the WinHKI software, which can be used to compress multimedia files and folders and encode them in a compressed archive affixed with the .hki1 extension. These .hki1 files are saved in the HKI1 format, developed for minimizing if not entirely eliminating quality loss in multimedia files archived with HKI1 compression specifications and saved with HKI1 encoding standards. The WinHKI software can be installed and used in computers running on Microsoft Windows-based systems. There are versions of the WinHKI software that were designed for Mac platforms. The WinHKI program also uses another archive file format, and these compressed files are affixed with the HKI extension.

how to open a .hki1 file?

Launch a .hki1 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 .hki1 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 .hki1 files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .hki1 file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .hki1 file will open the correct application.

WinHKI

WinKHI is a file compression tool from WinHKI that utilizes zip programs to create very small data files. It can extract and compress files in rar, tar, ace, and bzip formats, including archives in other formats. The compression and archiving techniques with zip programs significantly reduces the number of bits in files so transmission is faster over the Internet. The password protection included in the application for file security makes it suitable for email programs or uploading files to the internet. It employs HTML compression that reduces text pages, and picture compression tools are available to reduce photos and images. Archiving and file management tools like spanning, splitting, zip files, encryption and decryption, backup program creation, and zip software extraction support data compression. The archives are password protected to prevent tampering or accidental deletion, and are suitable for storage on the hard disk or Web-based disk storage. The WinHKI software package is compatible with Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP and Vista.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .hki1 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, .hki1. 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.
