Opening CLT files

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

What is a CLT file?

Files that contain the .clt file extension are most commonly associated with the Visual Basic application development software.

The CLT files that are created with this software contain an ActiveX control that has been created with the Visual Basic program, saving the control in a plain text format. The ActiveX controls can then be downloaded and executed by the user's Internet browser.

The CLT files that are created by Visual Basic contain the source code and the properties for the ActiveX control.

The dBASE IV Aldus software program has also been known to use the .clt file suffix. These CLT files contain setup control files that are referenced by the dBASE software.

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.
