Files with the .wsm extension are known as Wise Package Studio Merge Module files used by the Wise Package Studio program. They are responsible for storing files and information about installation settings in one package. These files can be installed on Windows but with the use of the program, it is possible to add or remove .wsm files.

a word of warning

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