What is LUA file?

The files that comprise of the .LUA extension consists of the LUA programming scripts. Such scripts are all written in the Lua programming language, a light-weight and embeddable scripting language.  These files are basically designed in a way which are useful to extend to various computer programs. They are all stand-alone files and they can be compiled together to generate an executable program. In the year 1993, this Lua programming language was created at the at the Pontifical Catholic University. 

One of the many computer programs such as Warcraft 2 makes use of the .LUA scripts in the operation of the application.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the LUA file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

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

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