What is SIS file?

A .SIS file, also known as the Symbian OS Installation Source file, contains OS installation archive file for the mobile devices, including Nokio, Ericsson, and Motorola phones. The SIS file created by the Symbian’s CreateSIS program or the makesis command comprises of two parts; a meta data part that describes the files to be installed on the device and the actual data that is installed on the device. The SIS file needs to be transferred to the device online for installation purpose by using the communication software.

Programs that support SIS file

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

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