Opening ALX files

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

What is an ALX file?

Files that contain the .alx file extension are Application Loader files. These files are created in the XML format and contain information about applications that are to be installed on a BlackBerry mobile device.

The ALX file format is used by the BlackBerry Desktop Manager and contains data that pertains to the computer location of the file you wish to install on your BlackBerry device.

The Alpha Five database software also uses the .alx file suffix. This software application uses the .alx file extension for database information files that are used by the program.

The .alx file extension is also used for Active X layout control files. These files contain HTML that is embedded into associated website pages.

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.
