    .wnd file ?

    Hey all

    Got a .wnd file from a client. I can open it in Notepad which I can read the text.

    Does anyone know what program this file extention is associated with?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm sure you checked somewhere like filext and google (I just did) but to no great benefit. Is it definintely from Windows? I found reference to Unknown Apple II file and WinG Hidden Palette Task.

    Could the client have simply changed the extension from, say, .doc or .rtf (etc.) to .wnd? Have you thought about opening it in Notepad++ and checking to see if there is a file signature which you could research. I know that MS Word has a specific signature and I *think* it depends upon which version of MS Word is used.

    Is there an icon associated with the file or is it a generic Windows icon?

    Unless you know what the file is in reference to then it's going to be hard to tell. Different program files can have the same type of extension if there's no standard governing the filetype.

    The software at this site uses .wnd files: http://www.turbosquid.com/

    Here's a link for info referenced above: http://filext.com/file-extension/WND

    If you can open it in Notepad and read the text, it shouldn't matter. Just rename it to .txt . They may have renamed it to get around a filter or something. I know where I work there are several extensions that are blocked.

    Though, now that you mention it, I recently saw a .wnd file, but can't recall what it was associated with.

    Ask the client what program they used to create the file.
