What are ERR files and how to open them

What is an ERR file?

Files that contain the .err file extension are usually associated with text files that log error messages for a variety of different computer software applications.

As errors occur within a software application, the errors are logged in an automatically-generated ERR file. The ERR file then can be sent to the software developers in order to address problems or bugs that may be occurring with the software program. These files are commonly used during the testing and development of a software program.

Popular applications that use the .err file extension for error files include the AutoCAD, FoxPro and AutoDesk software programs.
