Files with the SPB extension are mission saves, associated mainly with a Flight Simulator game – developed by Microsoft. Files contain data about condition of a flight mission and other data related to it.
SPB files can actually refer to other similar games, due to the fact that actually, they are not generated by the game but Microsoft ESP – a tool generating maps and scenes of flight simulation which are used, among others, in the mentioned game.
Structure of such files is based mainly on the XML format, but the final storing of the file with the ESP tools occurs with utilisation of SPB format and binary code. An SPB file can be easily converted into original XML format using the spb2xml program – this enables to open it. There are also special applications which facilitate editing SPB files.
When you install one of the applications from the list of programs that you found here, you should be able to open or edit the file with the SPB extension without any issue. However, if you still have problems with this, you may use the option of SPB file conversion to a different format.
We hope we helped you solve the problem with the SPB 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.
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the SPB file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the SPB 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 SPB 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 SPB 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 SPB file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
