Opening XPT files

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

What is a XPT file?

Files that contain the .xpt file extension are commonly associated with the Mozilla Firefox Internet browser. The XPT files that are used by this Web browser contain components or plug-ins for Firefox. For example, the Flash player plug-in would be saved as flashplayer.xpt.

The XPT files that are created for Firefox provide users with more features and functionality when using the Firefox browsing program.

Files that contain the .xpt file extension may also contain export SAS (Statistical Analysis Software) data files. These SAS data files are saved into the XPT file format so that the files can be read on another platform or with another software application.

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.
