File extension .ASEC

File description

File extension designed to work with Google Android OS is known as ASEC file that can work with 2.2 version of Android. The main objective of ASEC file extension is to simplify the process of application installation in the device.

The installed applications go in the memory card of device with encrypted file format. Users will always have to install a special program that supports ASEC file format since programs already installed in the device do not help in modify the saved files. There is only one software named Android SDK Emulator that helps users to work with ASEC file type. The worth mentioning fact here is that the memory card, where ASEC files are stored, cannot work with any other Android device since it automatically makes itself workable with the primary device.

Other possible reasons why your .ASEC file does not want to open

In addition to the problem described above, i.e. the lack of the appropriate application to support the .ASEC file, there may be several reasons that cause problems with opening and operation of the data format:

1. Incorrect version of the installed application

A quite common problem is the lack of application in the appropriate version. Even if you have an application, with the help of which you should open the .ASEC file, you may have a problem with it because of its version. Perhaps in previous versions the application has not yet supported the .ASEC file, so download the update and check again.

2. Incorrect .ASEC file association with the program

If you have already installed the appropriate application, and it is the correct version, the file may not open correctly, because the operating system does not have information that this program supports the file. So you need to "show" which program the computer should use. To do this:

  • Right-click the .ASEC file
  • Go to the "Open with" - then "Choose default program ..."
  • Locate the appropriate application
  • Click "OK"

3. The file is corrupt

It also happens that the file you want to open is corrupt and therefore there is no such possibility. In this situation, you should find its different version, or ask a person from whom you got, to send it again.
