How to open file with HS extension?

There can be multiple causes why you have problems with opening HS files on given system. Fortunately, most common problems with HS files can be solved without in-depth IT knowledge, and most importantly, in a matter of minutes. We have prepared a listing of which will help you resolve your problems with HS files.

Step 1. Install The Haskell Platform software

Problems with opening and working with HS files are most probably having to do with no proper software compatible with HS files being present on your machine. This issue can be addressed by downloading and installing The Haskell Platform or different compatible program, such as WinHugs, Leksah, EclipseFP. Above you will find a complete listing of programs that support HS files, classified according to system platforms for which they are available. If you want to download The Haskell Platform installer in the most secured manner, we suggest you visit website and download from their official repositories.

Step 2. Verify the you have the latest version of The Haskell Platform

If you already have The Haskell Platform installed on your systems and HS files are still not opened properly, check if you have the latest version of the software. It may also happen that software creators by updating their applications add compatibility with other, newer file formats. This can be one of the causes why HS files are not compatible with The Haskell Platform. The most recent version of The Haskell Platform is backward compatible and can handle file formats supported by older versions of the software.

Step 3. Set the default application to open HS files to The Haskell Platform

If the issue has not been solved in the previous step, you should associate HS files with latest version of The Haskell Platform you have installed on your device. The method is quite simple and varies little across operating systems.

Selecting the first-choice application in Windows

  • Right-click the HS file and choose Open with option
  • Select Choose another app → More apps
  • To finalize the process, select Look for another app on this PC entry and using the file explorer select the The Haskell Platform installation folder. Confirm by checking Always use this app to open HS files box and clicking OK button.

Selecting the first-choice application in Mac OS

  • Right-click the HS file and select Information
  • Find the Open with option – click the title if its hidden
  • Select the appropriate software and save your settings by clicking Change all
  • A message window should appear informing that This change will be applied to all files with HS extension. By clicking Continue you confirm your selection.

Step 4. Verify that the HS is not faulty

If you followed the instructions form the previous steps yet the issue is still not solved, you should verify the HS file in question. Problems with opening the file may arise due to various reasons.

1. The HS may be infected with malware – make sure to scan it with an antivirus tool.

Should it happed that the HS is infected with a virus, this may be that cause that prevents you from accessing it. Scan the HS file as well as your computer for malware or viruses. If the scanner detected that the HS file is unsafe, proceed as instructed by the antivirus program to neutralize the threat.

2. Check whether the file is corrupted or damaged

If you obtained the problematic HS file from a third party, ask them to supply you with another copy. During the copy process of the file errors may occurred rendering the file incomplete or corrupted. This could be the source of encountered problems with the file. If the HS file has been downloaded from the internet only partially, try to redownload it.

3. Verify whether your account has administrative rights

Sometimes in order to access files user need to have administrative privileges. Log in using an administrative account and see If this solves the problem.

4. Make sure that the system has sufficient resources to run The Haskell Platform

The operating systems may note enough free resources to run the application that support HS files. Close all running programs and try opening the HS file.

5. Verify that your operating system and drivers are up to date

Up-to-date system and drivers not only makes your computer more secure, but also may solve problems with Haskell Script file. It may be the case that the HS files work properly with updated software that addresses some system bugs.
