1st Method: Open it in another program.

When you double-click ICD files, your computer attempts to open it in a program associated with ICD files. If there’s no program associated with ICD files on your computer, the file won’t open. To open the file, download one of the most popular programs associated with ICD files such as ASTi Model Builder, Actuate Information Object Cache Definition, or SafeDisc Encrypted Digital Rights Management File.

2nd Method: Take a hint from the file type.

The ICD file extension usually indicates it's under the umbrella of Executable Files. However, if it’s another file type, it might not open with one of the programs listed above. Take the following steps to find the file type:

  1. Right-click the file.
  2. Click “Properties” (Windows) or “More Info” (Mac).
  3. Locate the file type under either “Type of File” (Windows) or “Kind” (Mac).

3rd Method: Check with the developer.

Even if these methods were unsuccessful, you might still be able to reach out to a software developer for help.
