The Quick Way to Open Files with FCW Extension

Different software packages use different file extensions, so if you can't open the FCW file, it could be because:

  • You don't have the associated software on your computer (Campaign Cartographer 2 and FastCAD File are the most popular software packages that use FCW file).

  • You may have Campaign Cartographer 2 or FastCAD File but your computer is not configured to associate FCW files with the relevant software.

  • The file is corrupt.

If You Don't Have Campaign Cartographer 2 or FastCAD File

In order to open your FCW file, you will have to download Campaign Cartographer 2, FastCAD File, or another similar software package.

If Your Computer is Not Configured to Open FCW Files

If you have the relevant software, but your computer still won't open the software, you will have to change the file associations on Windows or Mac. Depending on your operating system, you can ensure that your computer always open FCW files using Campaign Cartographer 2, FastCAD File, or another program of your choice that uses FCW files.

If that still doesn't work, you can get in touch with your software developer to find out what you can do. You can contact any of these developers for more information or assistance:
