.xef File Extension

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

what is a .xef file?

The .xef file extension is associated with two file types and applications. First, it is used by WinAce, a popular archive program. This is a good tool that allows users to save their files in an archive because this program can compress their files either in zip, rar, etc. These .xef files used by this application are usually encrypted files using the said application. Programs such as MacUnace for MAC and E-merge WinAce for Windows can be used to open files with this file extension. Likewise, the .xef file extension is also associated with eManager. This program is a very helpful tool when it comes to controlling risks as well as quality especially for offices, businesses and other organizations that require management tasks and incident handling tasks. The major applications that can open these .xef files are WinAce Archiver v2.69, X-Genics eManager, MacUnace, and E-merge WinAce, but a file converter can also be used to open these files without installing the said programs in the system.

how to open a .xef file?

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

a word of warning

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