How to open CTL files

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

What is a CTL file?

We know of 3 different uses of the CTL file type, one of them being LabVIEW Control data. Read the details below.

The CTL file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a CTL opener may not be able to open all kinds of CTL files. In this case, look through all formats to make sure you find the best suited CTL viewer.
