Below you will find an index of software programs that can be used to open JSON files divided into 3 categories according to system platform supported. Files with JSON extension, just like any other file formats, can be found on any operating system. The files in question may be transferred to other devices, be it mobile or stationary, yet not all systems may be capable of properly handling such files.
The most common reason for such problems is the lack of proper applications that supports JSON files installed on the system. This issue can be addressed by downloading and installing XMLSpy or different compatible program, such as Text editor, Windows Notepad, NotePad++ text editor. Above you will find a complete listing of programs that support JSON files, classified according to system platforms for which they are available. The safest method of downloading XMLSpy installed is by going to developer’s website () and downloading the software using provided links.
If the problems with opening JSON files still occur even after installing XMLSpy, it is possible that you have an outdated version of the software. Check the developer’s website whether a newer version of XMLSpy is available. It may also happen that software creators by updating their applications add compatibility with other, newer file formats. If you have an older version of XMLSpy installed, it may not support JSON format. The latest version of XMLSpy should support all file formats that where compatible with older versions of the software.
If you have the latest version of XMLSpy installed and the problem persists, select it as the default program to be used to manage JSON on your device. The next step should pose no problems. The procedure is straightforward and largely system-independent
