What is RTW file?

RTW filename suffix is mostly used for Real-Time Workshop Database files. Real-Time Workshop Database format was developed by MathWorks, Inc.. RTW files are supported by software applications available for devices running Windows. RTW file format, along with 361 other file formats, belongs to the Database Files category. Simulink Coder is by far the most used program for working with RTW files. On the official website of MathWorks, Inc. developer not only will you find detailed information about theSimulink Coder software, but also about RTW and other supported file formats.

Programs which support RTW file extension

The following listing features RTW-compatible programs. RTW files can be encountered on all system platforms, including mobile, yet there is no guarantee each will properly support such files.

How to open file with RTW extension?

Problems with accessing RTW may be due to various reasons. Fortunately, most common problems with RTW files can be solved without in-depth IT knowledge, and most importantly, in a matter of minutes. We have prepared a listing of which will help you resolve your problems with RTW files.

Step 1. Install Simulink Coder software

Install software to open RTW file The main and most frequent cause precluding users form opening RTW files is that no program that can handle RTW files is installed on user’s system. To address this issue, go to the Simulink Coder developer website, download the tool, and install it. It is that easy Above you will find a complete listing of programs that support RTW files, classified according to system platforms for which they are available. One of the most risk-free method of downloading software is using links provided by official distributors. Visit Simulink Coder website and download the installer.

Step 2. Update Simulink Coder to the latest version

Update software that support file extension RTWIf the problems with opening RTW files still occur even after installing Simulink Coder, it is possible that you have an outdated version of the software. Check the developer’s website whether a newer version of Simulink Coder is available. Software developers may implement support for more modern file formats in updated versions of their products. If you have an older version of Simulink Coder installed, it may not support RTW format. The latest version of Simulink Coder should support all file formats that where compatible with older versions of the software.

Step 3. Associate Real-Time Workshop Database files with Simulink Coder

If the issue has not been solved in the previous step, you should associate RTW files with latest version of Simulink Coder you have installed on your device. The next step should pose no problems. The procedure is straightforward and largely system-independent

Associate software with RTW file on Windows

Selecting the first-choice application in Windows

  • Choose the Open with entry from the file menu accessed by right-mouse clicking on the RTW file
  • Click Choose another app and then select More apps option
  • To finalize the process, select Look for another app on this PC entry and using the file explorer select the Simulink Coder installation folder. Confirm by checking Always use this app to open RTW files box and clicking OK button.
Associate software with RTW file on Mac

Selecting the first-choice application in Mac OS

  • From the drop-down menu, accessed by clicking the file with RTW extension, select Information
  • Proceed to the Open with section. If its closed, click the title to access available options
  • Select the appropriate software and save your settings by clicking Change all
  • If you followed the previous steps a message should appear: This change will be applied to all files with RTW extension. Next, click the Continue button to finalize the process.

Step 4. Ensure that the RTW file is complete and free of errors

You closely followed the steps listed in points 1-3, but the problem is still present? You should check whether the file is a proper RTW file. It is probable that the file is corrupted and thus cannot be accessed.

Check RTW file for viruses
1. The RTW may be infected with malware – make sure to scan it with an antivirus tool.

If the file is infected, the malware that resides in the RTW file hinders attempts to open it. It is advised to scan the system for viruses and malware as soon as possible or use an online antivirus scanner. If the RTW file is indeed infected follow the instructions below.

2. Check whether the file is corrupted or damaged

Did you receive the RTW file in question from a different person? Ask him/her to send it one more time. The file might have been copied erroneously and the data lost integrity, which precludes from accessing the file. When downloading the file with RTW extension from the internet an error may occurred resulting in incomplete file. Try downloading the file again.

3. Verify whether your account has administrative rights

Sometimes in order to access files user need to have administrative privileges. Switch to an account that has required privileges and try opening the Real-Time Workshop Database file again.

4. Make sure that the system has sufficient resources to run Simulink Coder

If the system is under havy load, it may not be able to handle the program that you use to open files with RTW extension. In this case close the other applications.

5. Ensure that you have the latest drivers and system updates and patches installed

Latest versions of programs and drivers may help you solve problems with Real-Time Workshop Database files and ensure security of your device and operating system. It may be the case that the RTW files work properly with updated software that addresses some system bugs.
