Opening V2 files

Did your computer fail to open a V2 file? We explain what V2 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your V2 files.

What is a V2 file?

Files that contain the .v2 file extension are usually associated with the Microsoft Live Messenger IM application. Users can use this IM application to "chat" online in real time with their online contacts. Using this application, users can also share video and pictures with their online contacts and can integrate the program with social networks that they may belong to.

The V2 files can contain data files and event logs for the Live Messenger application. These are generic data files that are used by the Live Messenger IM application. The V2 files that are used by this program are normally stored in a text-based file format.

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.
