1st Method: Open it in another program.

When you double-click FLS files, your computer attempts to open it in a program associated with FLS files. If there’s no program associated with FLS files on your computer, the file won’t open. To open the file, download one of the most popular programs associated with FLS files such as Nokia Phone Flash File, Creator Simulator Fault List, or Stock Prospector Data Export Format.

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

The FLS file extension usually indicates it's under the umbrella of GIS 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.

So you’ve tried using a different program, you’ve confirmed the file type, and your FLS file still won’t open. Even if these methods were unsuccessful, you might still be able to reach out to a software developer for help. Use the chart below to find the developer for each of the programs mentioned above and contact them directly for assistance.
