The most common cause of problems with opening the IAR file is simply the lack of appropriate applications installed on your computer. In this case, it is sufficient to find, download and install an application that supports the IAR file format - this type of programs are available below.

Enter the file extension
It should be noted that some coded data from files that your computer does not read can be sometimes previewed in a Notepad. This way, we will read passages of a text or numbers. It is worth checking if this method can also be applied to the IAR files.
Often, an installed application should automatically link to a IAR file. If it did not happen, the IAR file can be linked with the newly installed application manually. Simply right-click on the IAR file, then from the available list select "Choose default program". Next, select "Browse" and find the application you selected. These changes have to be confirmed by pressing the "OK" button.
However, problems with the IAR files can also have a different background. Sometimes even the software, installed on your computer, that supports the IAR files does not solve the problem. The reason for the fact that the IAR file can’t be opened and used can also be:
- an incorrect link to the IAR file in the registry entries
- corruption of a IAR file, that you want to open
- infection of a IAR file (viruses)
- insufficient computer hardware resources
- drivers out of date
- accidental deletion of the IAR file from the Windows registry
- incomplete installation of the program that supports a IAR file?
Solving these problems should allow the free opening and working with the IAR files. If the computer still has problems with the files, use the services of an expert who will diagnose a specific cause.
In the standard Windows settings, a computer user cannot see the IAR file extension. However, you can successfully change this in the settings. Just go to "Control Panel" and select "Appearance and Personalization". Then, go to the "Folder Options" and open the "View" tab. On the "View" tab, you will find "Hide extensions for known file types" – you should mark this option and confirm by pressing "OK". At this point, the extension of all files, including the IAR files should be displayed after the file name.
