The Quick Way to Open Files with CAP Extension

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

  • You don't have the associated software on your computer (NetMon Capture File, Snoop Capture File, and Telix Session Capture are the most popular software packages that use CAP file).

  • You may have NetMon Capture File, Snoop Capture File, or Telix Session Capture but your computer is not configured to associate CAP files with the relevant software.

  • The file is corrupt.


If You Don't Have NetMon Capture File, Snoop Capture File, or Telix Session Capture Software Installed

In order to open your CAP file, you will have to download NetMon Capture File, Snoop Capture File, Telix Session Capture, or another similar software package.

If Your Computer is Not Configured to Open CAP 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 CAP files using NetMon Capture File, Snoop Capture File, Telix Session Capture, or another program of your choice that uses CAP 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:
