What is CSR file?

A Certificate Signing request file or the .CSR format extension is basically a block of some encrypted text that is generated right on the server that the particular certificate is to be used on. It comprises of information that is mentioned on your certificate like the name of your organization, the domain or common name, country and locality. It also encloses that public key that is to be a vital part of your certificate. On the other hand, the private key is the one which is normally created right at the time when the .CSR file is created.

What else may cause problems?

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

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