What is PYC file?

A .PYC file is a bytecode that is created when the Python source code is compiled for the first time. The Python interpreter uses the .PYC file for interpreting the compiled code, and avoids the overhead of recompilation once the .PYC file is created for the Python module. Availability of the .PYC file enhances the execution speed of the Python module, which also occupies less storage space. The .PYC file created for the module can be stored or removed from the system based on the module’s requirement.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the PYC 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 PYC file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

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