.a3l File Extension

Developer: Adobe Systems
File type: Authorware 3 Library
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .a3l. Files with the file extension .a3l can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .a3l files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .a3l file?

The Authorware 3 software is a program developed for the creation of a wide variety of e-learning applications, and this software uses the data stored in files with the .a3l extension. Also known as Authorware Library files and classified as data files, these A3L files consist of objects embedded or integrated into application projects developed using the Authorware 3 program. These A3L files may also contain icons and sound clips inserted by users into their e-learning application projects. As data files, the Authorware 3 application references the data stored in these A3L files when required by the user. Macromedia developed the Authorware 3 application, up to version 7, before Adobe Systems acquired Macromedia. Users with Microsoft Windows-based systems and Mac platforms can install the Adobe Authorware 7 application to integrate support into their systems for these A3L files. These A3L files are created by the application when users enter objects into their Authorware application development projects.

how to open a .a3l file?

Launch a .a3l 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 .a3l file will open it.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .a3l 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, .a3l. 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.
