Opening PYD files

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

What is a PYD file?

Files that contain the .pyd file extension are most commonly associated with dynamic module files that are used with a variety of different applications that have been written in the Python programming language.

Python is a general-purpose programming language that emphasizes readability of program code.

The PYD files that are used with Python are similar to the DLL files that are used by Windows, but the PYD files are written in the Python programming language.

The .pyd file suffix is also used by the Jabber client. These PYD files contain dynamic module files that are used by the Jabber client software.

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.
