.hki3 File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: WinHKI HKI3 Archive File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .hki3. Files with the file extension .hki3 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .hki3 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .hki3 file?

A WinHKI HKI3 archive is classified as a compressed file, and these archive files are stored in the HKI3 format. Compression specifications and standards integrated with the HKI3 file format are used by the WinHKI software for generating archives of files and folders selected by the user for compression into one HKI3 file. These compression standards were developed for optimal compression of data categorized as file types other than digital document files, multimedia files and program files. These document files are text and word documents embedded with visual elements and objects, while these multimedia files include digital videos and images among others. Application files are on the other hand developer files and installation packages of applications. This is because the WinHKI software, a file compression and decompression tool, already provides compression options for these file types, namely the HKI1 format for multimedia content and HKI2 compression standards for digital documents and program files.

how to open a .hki3 file?

Launch a .hki3 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 .hki3 file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .hki3 files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .hki3 file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .hki3 file will open the correct application.

applications that open a .hki3 file



WinKHI is a file compression tool from WinHKI that utilizes zip programs to create very small data files. It can extract and compress files in rar, tar, ace, and bzip formats, including archives in other formats. The compression and archiving techniques with zip programs significantly reduces the number of bits in files so transmission is faster over the Internet. The password protection included in the application for file security makes it suitable for email programs or uploading files to the internet. It employs HTML compression that reduces text pages, and picture compression tools are available to reduce photos and images. Archiving and file management tools like spanning, splitting, zip files, encryption and decryption, backup program creation, and zip software extraction support data compression. The archives are password protected to prevent tampering or accidental deletion, and are suitable for storage on the hard disk or Web-based disk storage. The WinHKI software package is compatible with Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP and Vista.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .hki3 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, .hki3. 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.
