What is ASC file?

Have you heard about the American Standard Code of Information, which is shortly called as ASCII? A file with .ASC extension is a text file with the standard codes specified by ASCII. In general, the files with this extension will have text data, but the data will be in the form of code and not in the form of text. In an ASCII file, every character inclusive of alphabets and numeric or even special characters is denoted using a 7-bit binary number. ASCII codes denote text in computers and other telecommunication devices. Numbers ranging from 0 to 127 are assigned to each character, which helps in transfer of data from one computer to another.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the ASC file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the ASC file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the ASC file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the ASC file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the ASC file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
