Opening MDX files

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

What is a MDX file?

Files that contain the .mdx file extension are most commonly associated with the Warcraft III gaming application.

Warcraft III is a real-time strategy game. Players enter the world of Azeroth and build bases and control units to take over territory. The MDX files that are used by this game store the 3D game model and details about the textures and meshes for the units that are used by the game players.

The MDX files that are installed on a user's computer can be the standard files that are provided by the gaming application or they may contain customized 3D models that have been created using a 3D modeling editor. Custom files are often used to enhance a user's gameplay experience.

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.
