Opening VBW files

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

What is a VBW file?

Files that contain the .vbw file extension are most commonly associated with the Microsoft Visual Basic software application. Microsoft Visual Basic is used by software developers to create software applications in the Visual Basic language using a user-friendly development interface. Visual Basic is an object-orientated programming language developed by Microsoft.

The VBW files that are used by the Microsoft Visual Basic software create workspace files that are created with the software application. These files are used to develop word processing, Web and mobile applications for the Windows operating environment.

Microsoft Visual Basic was discontinued by Microsoft. The program has been replaced by the newer Visual Studio for Windows and Web development application.

Software that will open, convert or fix VBW files

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.
