Files with the .CRDOWNLOAD extension contain data partially downloaded by the download manager of the Google Chrome Internet browser. The file can be of any type, however until its complete download, its extension is stored as .CRDOWNLOAD. If downloading of a file is stopped, the file may remain in a download folder. Sometime it is possible to reinitiate such download in the Chrome browser, or to open a partially downloaded file by erasing the .CRDOWNLOAD extension from its file name.
.CRDOWNLOAD files are created automatically, and the extension is added on the end of the full name of a target file. For instance – for a file named movie.mp4, during download, in the Chrome’s download folder it will operate under the name: movie.mp4.CRDOWNLOAD. The default catalogue, in which such files are stored, is the Downloaded subfolder in the user’s catalogue. It is worth to verify its content, in order to delate unnecessary files covering disc space.

First - the CRDOWNLOAD 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 CRDOWNLOAD 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 CRDOWNLOAD 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 CRDOWNLOAD file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
