What is OXPS file?

Files with the .OXPS extension contain text documents compressed in ZIP format, possibly with graphic element prepared for printout. All information, including page layout, are stored in an open programming language based on XAML – OpenXPS. It was standardized by the Ecma International organisation in 2009, on the basis of the XPS - XML Paper Specification, developed by Windows in the year 2006.

This format supports additional functionalities, such as:

  • Calibration of a printer within CMYK colour pallet,
  • Printing templates,
  • Gradients and colour transparency,
  • Support for Windows system colours – WCS.

OXPS files resemble PDF and PostSCript files – the have a specified page layout, in order to enable true reproducing of the document. It is a type of digital printout. OXPS does not support dynamic elements.

What else may cause problems?

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