What is IFF file?

The .IFF file format stands for Interchange File Format. The files that comprise this particular extension are mainly used to exchange documents or files across several different computing platforms, enabling users to run on a single platform to share documents with a user who is running on a completely different computing platform.

Electronic Arts initially created the universal .IFF file format. Such files may consist of graphics, text, and even audio data. The Alias Wavefront program also makes use of the .IFF file format. Here the .IFF file format comprises of the image files that are generated by the application.

What else may cause problems?

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

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