How to open DVI files

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

What is a DVI file?

We know of 3 different uses of the DVI file type, one of them being Device Independent Document (TeX/LaTeX compiled). Read the details below.

The DVI 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 DVI opener may not be able to open all kinds of DVI files. In this case, look through all formats to make sure you find the best suited DVI viewer.
