Opening VCS files

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

What is a VCS file?

Files that contain the .vcs file extension are usually associated with the vCalendar e-calendar and scheduling software application.

This VCS file format is primarily used by the Microsoft Outlook email and scheduling application, but other scheduling software applications can use the VCS file format as well.

A VCS file contains information about events and appointments that a user schedule's in the software's associated calendar. This information can then be imported into other calendar and scheduling software application, such as Microsoft Outlook, Apple iCal and a variety of Palm PDA applications.

The Valve Left 4 Dead computer gaming software has also been known to use the .vcs file suffix. This application uses the .vcs file extension for the shader files that are used by the computer game.

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.
