How to open FM2 file?

An often recurring problem with FCEUX Movie is that FM2 is not associated with the correct program file. Thus, when you open FM2, the program selection wizard or some other program starts. This can be quickly resolved by following the instructions below.

The first thing you should do is just "doubleclick" on the FM2 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 FCEUX

An often overlooked issue is to make sure that FCEUX is installed on the computer. The easiest method is to use the system search engine by entering the program name FCEUX in it. If it is not, installation may solve the problem, as most applications create file associations during installation. Below you will find a list of applications that support FM2 files.

Programs to open FM2 file

Remember to download programs supporting FM2 files only from verified and safe sources. We suggest using the websites of software developers.

Step 2. Create association of FCEUX with FM2 files

If, despite the installed application, the FM2 file does not start in the FCEUX application, you must create a file association. 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 select the desired program. 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 FM2 file with the FCEUX application.

Step 3. Update FCEUX to the latest version

The fault may also lie with the FCEUX program, it is possible that FCEUX Movie requires a newer version of the program. Some applications allow you to update from the program level, and for others you need to download the installer from the FCEUX project team page and install.

Step 4. Check for the following problems with the FM2 file

Of course, it may happen that despite the above steps, the file still does not work. The most common file problems are:

Very often, the file may be size 0 or incomplete. This is most often caused by a problem while downloading the FM2 file. The only repair option is to download the file again.
The most common cause here is computer viruses. A virus scan using an up-to-date antivirus program should fix the problem. Some antivirus vendors also provide free online scanners. The scan should cover the entire computer, not only the FM2 file that we want to open. However, remember that not every infected FM2 file can be recovered, so it is important to take care of regular backups.
This can happen especially when the program is dynamically developed and the structure of the FM2 files changes over time. Help should be sought from the software developer, as they usually recommend using free file converters or installing an older version of the program.
There can be many reasons for this. Repairing is very dependent on the file type. Sometimes the program itself has options to repair the most popular FM2 file corruption. The easiest way is to restore the file from a backup, if there is one, or contact FCEUX project team
When reading, a message appears that the file was encrypted or corrupted. The encrypted file FM2 except for the special designation, works normally, but only on the device where it was encrypted, before transferring it to another machine, decryption is required.
The operating system protects files in some locations (e.g. the root of the system partition) against unauthorized access. While there is usually no problem reading such a file, it may not be possible to save it. It is best to move FM2 to a different directory.
This problem usually affects more complex files. You may find that another program you are using is preventing you from working with the file. Running programs (including those in the background) should be verified. Sometimes it is necessary to wait a while before referencing the FM2 file again. Antivirus programs or a backup being made may lock the file for a while without the user's knowledge. If this does not work either, restart the device.
