How to open HLE files

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

What is a HLE file?

HLE files are HomeBrew Level files, which you can read more about below.

The HLE 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 HLE opener may not be able to open all kinds of HLE files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
