Opening UPG files

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

What is an UPG file?

Files that contain the .upg file extension are most commonly associated with firmware upgrade files. These UPG files contain the firmware upgrade data that adds new and updated versions of the firmware and added functions to an associated hardware device.

A variety of firmware applications use the .upg file extension for many different hardware devices, such as the Pioneer DVJ-1000 and devices using the Verizon Versalink.

The SIEMENS Automation License Manager also uses the .upg file extension. These files contain license files for the software application, storing a user's license information and ensuring that unauthorized use of the software is not allowed.

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.
