What is WEM file?

The .WEM file is a sound engine used in the production of video games audios. It contains audio data that is encoded in the Wwise proprietary format. The proprietary binary format applies a format which allows for sound modification in real time. This file is packaged within a game archive and not as a standalone game asset file.
It was developed by Audiokinetic, and it’s associated with the Wwise (WaveWorks Interactive Sound Engine) Encoded Media File. Video games like Star Wars: The Old Republic or Batman: Arkham City were produced using Wwise.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the WEM file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

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