How to open DVM file?

The most common problem when using DVM Movie Format Format is that a specific DVM is not associated with the program. Thus, when you open DVM, the program selection wizard or some other program starts. This problem can be easily remedied.

The first thing you should do is just "doubleclick" on the DVM 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 DVM development kit

An often overlooked issue is to make sure that DVM development kit is installed on the computer. To do this, enter the name DVM development kit into the system search engine. If it is not, installation may solve the problem, as most applications create file associations during installation. Later in this article you will find a list of programs that can open DVM files.

Step 2. Create association of DVM development kit with DVM files

However, it may happen that the application itself does not cause the DVM file to open in the DVM development kit application, but you can set it manually. This option is available from the level of Properties of a specific file available in the context menu. Information about the file and the program that the file is associated with are available here. 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. The "always use the selected program ..." field will set the DVM development kit application as the default for handling the DVM file.

Step 3. Update DVM development kit to the latest version

If, however, after binding DVM development kit with DVM Movie Format Format there were still problems, you should update the program to the latest version. In this case, use the Magic Software website or update the program from the application.

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

The problem may also be with the file itself if the above steps don't work. This could be due to the file itself, the cleanest issues are:

Very often, the file may be size 0 or incomplete. This suggests truncating the DVM file contents when downloading or copying. The file should be downloaded again, making sure that the process has finished correctly.
The operating system may be infected with a computer virus. 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. For the best results, we will scan the entire operating system, not just our DVM file. However, remember that not every infected DVM file can be recovered, so it is important to take care of regular backups.
Older version of DVM 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.
There can be many reasons for the failure. Depending on the type of file, it is necessary to repair it accordingly. Sometimes the program itself has options to repair the most popular DVM file corruption. You can restore the file from a backup or use help.
The program indicates that the file is encrypted or corrupted. The encrypted DVM files can be used by the device on which they were encrypted, on any other device it is required to have the appropriate cryptographic key and decrypt the file before its recovery.
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. Copying the DVM file to another location will fix the problem.
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 you have to wait for the session to the file DVM to close. Some anti-virus or backup software may occupy the DVM file for a certain period of time. If this does not work either, restart the device.
