What is KML file?

Keyhole Markup Language has an abbreviation as .KML file format. The Keyhole Corporation originally developed the .KM file format as an imperative Keyhole mapping program. Later in the year 2004, the Keyhole corporation and its application was acquired by Google. The .KML format is now being used by the Google Earth program, though other mapping application have been also using this file format.

The .KML files make use of the XML format, which is useful in storing the geographic modeling information. These files comprise of the polygons, images, points and lines. The locations are labeled and create an overlay texture, different camera angles for the maps that are then created by the mapping programs.

What else may cause problems?

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

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