What are SOL files and how to open them
Are you having problems opening a SOL file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your SOL files.
What is a SOL file?
SOL files have multiple uses, and Flash Shared Object (Local) is one of them. Read more about the other uses further down the page.
Flash Shared Object (Local) File
Files using the .sol file extension are files containing settings and user data saved for the Macromedia/Adobe Flash Player.
The SOL file format is only used by Flash versions six and later. SOL files are very similar to the cookie files created by many different websites on the Internet. Because of this, these files are commonly referred to as Flash cookies.
SOL files contain local shared objects. These objects are shared across multiple Flash player sessions to save a user's settings and information, allowing the information to be used across multiple Flash player sessions.
