.mzz File Extension

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

what is a .mzz file?

A Microsoft .NET download package file is integrated with custom compression specifications proprietary to Microsoft for the Microsoft .NET Framework installation package. These Microsoft .NET download package files are also implemented with custom encoding standards, again proprietary to Microsoft, that are deployed for storing the Microsoft .NET Framework installer in the MZZ format. Affixed with the .mzz extension, the content of a Microsoft .NET download package file includes source code needed by the Microsoft Windows-based system to initialize other application files bundled in the Microsoft .NET download package file to start the installation process for the Microsoft .NET Framework software. The Microsoft .NET Framework software is required to be installed in a Microsoft Windows-based system when .NET programs are installed in the system. Some .NET applications cannot be installed in the system until the correct Microsoft .NET Framework version is already installed. Microsoft Windows 7 is implemented with support for these .NET applications.

how to open a .mzz file?

Launch a .mzz 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 .mzz file will open it.

Microsoft Windows is a sequence of graphical interface operating systems developed, marketed, and sold by Microsoft Corporation. Some of its features are: (1) Windows Live - is a group of tools and software for Windows’ use. Users can have access to Windows Live by making a free account. This includes a chat client, networking tools, a movie maker and photo gallery, and email and Internet functions. A user can select to download and utilize all of these programs, or only download a selection of them depending on needs; (2) Windows Search - is a search function included with Windows that permits the user to search for files by name, date and file, text within a file in case user cannot remember the document name, and the entire computer. Windows Search is located in the start menu; (3) Windows Updates – this includes an automatic update feature with the purpose of keeping its operating system safe and up-to-date. Security updates are fixed with this feature to help protect against new risks as well as to apply any software updates and bug fixes. Users can set this feature to check for new updates and install them directly or turn off the automatic update feature and check for updates manually on their own; and (4) Windows Taskbar - is the central navigation tool for Windows. It includes the Start Menu, which allows users to open programs and features. It also includes a clock, calendar, and program icons for things such as usually utilized programs and updates. The taskbar and the items displayed in it are customizable. It is located at the bottom of the screen by default, but can be moved to the top or sides of the screen if the user chooses. The company launched an operating setting named Windows on November 20, 1985 as an add-on to MS-DOS in response to the rising interest in graphical user interfaces (GUIs). Microsoft Windows came to rule the world's personal computer market with over 90% market share, overtaking Mac OS, which had been introduced in 1984. The most recent client version of Windows is Windows 7; the most recent server version is Windows Server 2012; the most recent mobile version is Windows Phone 7.5.

a word of warning

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