What is XAP file?

A .XAP file is an application package created for Windows 7/8 devices to deploy the application package in the compressed zip format.  The XAP file is a default file format that was originally created for the Microsoft Silverlight applications. Later, the XAP file was supported for distributing the Windows 7 application packages. The XAP file comprises of two types of files namely, the application manifest file stored in the XAML file format and the DLL files as required by the application.

Programs that support XAP file

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

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