TCX is a XML database file generated by Garmin and Fitbit devices. This file format is mostly used by Garmin Training Center software. TCX file contains various data related to sports, including type of sport, time records, distance, burned calories, training intensity, and heart rate.
TCX files are encoded in XML format, and are used as a means of exchanging data between various physical activity monitoring devices. Registered data can be also uploaded to personal computers. Such data is helpful in managing one’s physical activities.
TCX file format has two versions – TCX v1 and TCX v2. Latest editions of Garmin Training Center software support both versions.
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 TCX extension without any issue. However, if you still have problems with this, you may use the option of TCX file conversion to a different format.

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the TCX file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the TCX 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 TCX 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 TCX 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 TCX file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
