Opening ERR files

Did your computer fail to open an ERR file? We explain what ERR files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your ERR files.

What is an ERR file?

Files that contain the .err file extension are usually associated with text files that log error messages for a variety of different computer software applications.

As errors occur within a software application, the errors are logged in an automatically-generated ERR file. The ERR file then can be sent to the software developers in order to address problems or bugs that may be occurring with the software program. These files are commonly used during the testing and development of a software program.

Popular applications that use the .err file extension for error files include the AutoCAD, FoxPro and AutoDesk software programs.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
