Opening RCC files

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

What is a RCC file?

The .rcc file extension is not a common file type used to identify resource files. RCC file extension is more widely known as RC file format. RC file is a source code and script file type that is mainly associated with C/C++ programming language. It is a resource- definition script file that describes the resources used by an application. Moreover, RC files contain information on how to compile program source files and keep them intact without using defragmentation.

RC files are based on resource script files. Resource Compiler (Windows) needs RC resource script files to create resource files (.rc files) that are vital for running a program. Resource script files contain descriptions that suggest all items that are necessary in making binary resource files. It identifies where the program derived the instructions, what appearance or image it will show itself to identify the program, and how it will start.

Resource Compiler (Windows) will then compile the resource script files into binary resource files with a .rc as suffix on its file name. RC files are essentially, a compilation of script files.

Try a universal file viewer
