DATALESS Files: What to Do If You Don't Have Exchange of Earthquake Data Software

Exchange of Earthquake Data is typically associated with binary DATALESS files, so you might be mistaken for thinking that program is the only way to open a file with a DATALESS extension.

Either way, if you're stuck with a DATALESS file you absolutely have to open, keep on reading. We'll show you how to open it, even if you don't have Exchange of Earthquake Data software installed on your system.

Opening DATALESS Files without Exchange of Earthquake Data

Different software packages tend to sometimes share similar file types. Exchange of Earthquake Data is one of the popular programs that use the DATALESS file extension, so you should be able to use it to open your file. You might even be able to find others by doing a quick Google search.


A word of warning, though. Be sure to scan any free software you download with a malware checker before running it on your computer.

If You Have Exchange of Earthquake Data Installed

If this software package is already installed on your PC, but it still won't work to open your DATALESS file, you might have to check that the file associations are correct. Right-click on the file, select "Open With..." and then select Exchange of Earthquake Data. That will create an association between the DATALESS file extension and your chosen software.

Your DATALESS Might Be Corrupt

Finally, if you're still having problems opening your DATALESS file, download the file again or ask the sender to resend it. It's possible that your DATALESS file might be corrupt. As a last resort, contact the software developers to see if they may be of further assistance.
