These files can only be opened using WinCatalog but there are converters and editors as well as file fixers that can open these files even without the program.

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, .wcat. 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.
