.mx File Extension

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

what is a .mx file?

The MX file extension is known as the Mathematica Serialized Package File which was developed by Wolfram Research. The Mathematica Serialized Package is a desktop application used for computation and visualization. It stores Mathematica expressions in a proprietary serialized format. It is used for distributing Mathematica packages and optimized fast loading. This binary file format which means, is not human readable. They cannot be exchanged between different operating systems or versions of Mathematica because they are system dependent. They can be created using DumpSave and read using Get. DumpSave writes definitions for a symbol, all symbols, or for several symbols. They can also be imported and exported using the Import and Export command. For example, Import [""] reads the MX file and returns an expression. Similarly, Export ["", expr] serializes the "expr" expression and saves it to an MX file. Files in MX format can be opened with Wolfram Research Mathematica in Microsoft Windows or Mac platforms.

how to open a .mx file?

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

Wolfram Research Mathematica

Wolfram Research Mathematica

Mathematica is more than the cross-platform computational software conceived by Stephen Wolfram and developed by Wolfram Research. It's the ultimate high-performance computing engine made up of different applications widely used in academic research, programming and software development, engineering, applied mathematics, and other specialized fields in science and technology. The latest version of Mathematica has expanded its functionality with the Wolfram Predictive Interface, which has more than 400 additional capabilities. These include a full suite of social network analysis tools, advanced image processing algorithms, and a context-sensitive input assistant. Mathematica employs a hybrid numerical-symbolic computing approach to analyzing problems and finding solutions. It makes use of automation to increase productivity in key areas of computing, visualization, and development. In essence, it's an all-in-one platform that supports programming languages that follow different paradigms, provides community support with a built-in knowledge base, and implements a document-based workflow.

a word of warning

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