What is EX_ file?

EX_ is a compressed EXE executable file. EX_ file stores the actual EXE executable file for a given program or application.

The idea behind EX_ format

EX_ files are used for installer archivization purposes and to reduce file size. After installation, the files are decompressed and renamed as original EXE files. Reduced installer file size facilitates sending the files on the internet.

Creating EX_ files

EX_ archive files are generated basd on original EXE files using Windows tool Makecab. Reversing the process is possible by using Windows expand.exe tool. EX_ archive is named the same as the original EXE file.

What else may cause problems?

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

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