The first thing you should do is just "doubleclick" on the AXM file icon you want to open. If the operating system has an appropriate application to support it and there is also an association between the file and the program, the file should be opened.

Step 1. Install AXMEDIS Editor

Programs to open AXM file

Remember to download programs supporting AXM files only from verified and safe sources. We suggest using the websites of software developers.

Step 2. Create association of AXMEDIS Editor with AXM files

If the application is or has been freshly installed, but the AXM file still does not use the AXMEDIS Editor program, it means no association. This option is available from the level of Properties of a specific file available in the context menu. The displayed window will contain information about the program that supports this type of file. Using the "Change" button we can set the program to handle this type. If there is no software on the list, simply select "Browse" and manually select the directory where the application is installed. However, it is important to check the "Always use the selected program ..." box, this will allow you to permanently associate the AXM file with the AXMEDIS Editor application.

Step 3. Update AXMEDIS Editor to the latest version

The fault may also lie with the AXMEDIS Editor program, it is possible that AXMEDIS Object requires a newer version of the program.

Step 4. Check for the following problems with the AXM file

Of course, it may happen that despite the above steps, the file still does not work. File problems can be divided into the following:

The affected file may be 0 KB or smaller than expected. This is most often caused by a problem while downloading the AXM file. Downloading the file again should fix the problem.
The computer may have fallen victim to a computer virus or hacker. A virus scan using an up-to-date antivirus program should fix the problem. If this is not possible, you can use the online scanner. The scan should cover the entire computer, not only the AXM file that we want to open. As a result of the scan, sometimes it is not possible to recover AXM files, which are deleted if there is a backup of this file, then after restoring it, it must also be scanned.
Older version of AXM file may not always be supported by the latest software version. On their websites, developers usually offer free solutions to such problems, e.g. in the form of a conversion program or an older version of the program.
The file may be corrupted in a number of ways. Depending on the type of file, it is necessary to repair it accordingly. Some programs offer the ability to automatically repair AXM file corruption.
When reading, a message appears that the file was encrypted or corrupted. The encrypted AXM files cannot be played on other computers than the one on which they were encrypted, they must be decrypted before using on another device.
The operating system protects files in some locations (e.g. the root of the system partition) against unauthorized access. These directories are write-protected to them and it's very hard to fix this problem. It is best to move AXM to a different directory.
This can happen on a file that does not support multiple access. You may find that another program you are using is preventing you from working with the file. Just close unnecessary programs. Sometimes it is necessary to wait a while before referencing the AXM file again. However, some background programs may block the AXM file while scanning. If this does not work either, restart the device.
