Opening RUN files

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

What is a RUN file?

Files that contain the .run file extension are commonly associated with the Rune gaming application. The .run files that are used for this computer game contain the level map for the gaming software.

While the RUN files that are used by Rune contain map data, they do not contain any of the actual textures that are seen within the gaming environment.

The Unix Shell Installer has also been known to use the .run file suffix. These RUN files contain the installer script files that are used by the Unix Shell Installer.

AMOS executable files also use the .run file extension.

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.
