Opening XXX files

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

What is a XXX file?

Files that contain the .xxx file extension are most commonly associated with the Compucon Embroidery Operating System.

The Compucon Embroidery Operating System is built into Compucon sewing machines, using the XXX files to store the embroideries and patterns that the machine can create. These files give the embroidery machine instructions regarding which patterns to sew and which colors to use within the associated pattern file.

The .xxx file extension is also used as a placeholder extension by a variety of different software applications for undefined computer files.

The Corel PaintShop Photo Pro software also uses the .xxx file extension. These .xxx files contain panorama files that are saved by the album software.

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.
