.WMC File Extension

Developer: MARC Analysis Research Corporation
File type: Startup File Backup
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .WMC . Files with the file extension .WMC  can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .WMC  files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .WMC  file?

In the early 1990s, the file extension WMC was the format implemented by the de facto word processor at that time, in which this word processor was later on replaced by Microsoft Word. The WMC file extension initially runs on minicomputers such as the Prime and Digital Equipment Corporation VAX, with a 32-bit computing architecture. It includes Document assembly process, where advanced features therein maintains each chapter of a particular article or book in separate files, and combines them for printing, simultaneously creating a table of contents or index. It offers multi-level equations, endnotes, footnotes, automatic paragraph numbering, scientific characters and Support for mixed fonts. When the IBM PC became widely known for word processing, the file extension WMC enabled its users to easily transfer their documents to and from PCs and their minicomputers. WMC stands for WordMARC Text format, a word processing format that was developed by MARC Software thru the MARC Analysis Research. Before, it was called MUSE (MARC Universal Screen Editor), but was renamed in respect to the trademark of the company. In the newer version of files with .wmc extension, the WordPerfect version 5.0 has new styles and style libraries, with improvements in its flexibility and power in formatting documents.

how to open a .WMC  file?

Launch a .WMC  file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .WMC  file will open it.

In this case, when you try to open a .WMC  file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .WMC  file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .WMC  files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .WMC . File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
