.wdf File Extension

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

what is a .wdf file?

The .wdf file extension is implemented by the Workshare Compare software, and these WDF files are documents that this program can create, open, modify or edit. This program is used to compare documents, and .wdf files that were created using this program can contain the details of those document comparisons. There are two versions of the documents being compared, so these details are helpful for users to carefully analyze the data contained in these WDF files. This software is implemented with compatibility support for widely used versions of Microsoft Windows, and these WDF files can only be supported by the system upon installation of this program.

how to open a .wdf file?

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

Workshare Compare

Workshare Compare is a document comparison engine that streamlines the review process for text-based Word or PDF documents by identifying document changes. The technology in this tool allows users to compare a document against multiple versions accurately, from each character, word, line, or paragraph. It allows simultaneous comparison of more than two documents and produces a 3-panel view that automatically identifies and highlights what has changed in each document version. Comparison types like Word-to-Word, Word-to-PDF, and PDF-to-PDF are allowed, including comparison of Microsoft Excel tables imbedded in a Microsoft Word Document. Its time saving feature allows users to choose the category for comparison, for example numbering, punctuation, and spelling corrections. After completing document review, the comparison may be saved as a Workshare Compare DeltaFile (.wdf). The DeltaFile will contain all three documents (original, modified, and redline). If only the redline document is of particular interest, it can be saved as a PDF, DOC/ DOCX, TXT, RTF, or HTML file. The recommended hardware to run the application is an Intel Core 2 DUO processor with 2.2 GHz AMD Athlon, 64 x2 4400+2GB RAM, and 2GB free disk space. It runs on systems powered by Microsoft Windows XP SP3, Windows 7 and 7 SP1 (32 bit and 64 bit) with default UAC, and Vista SP2 (32 bit and 64 bit) with the UAC disabled.

a word of warning

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