Opening 15 files

Did your computer fail to open a 15 file? We explain what 15 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your 15 files.

What is a 15 file?

The 15 file format was developed by Ubisoft Entertainment for one of its game software products. Created as a proprietary game file format, these .15 files contain digital music that is used for Salt Lake Winter Olympics 2002. This is a winter sports simulation video game that is designed for Microsoft Windows PCs and Microsoft gaming consoles.

The digital music that is stored in a .15 file is used for the audio clips, sound effects and background music tracks of Salt Lake Winter Olympics 2002. These .15 files are played by this software during gameplay. These are also played during game menu selections and while the software is displaying configuration option screens.

It's best to leave these 15 files alone, in order for Salt Lake Winter Olympics 2002 to function properly. Only this game can open and play the audio data that is stored in these .15 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.
