If it's not worth your while to buy Exchange Extended Configuration File, Micrografx Media Manager, or Outlook Add-in File, you could always do a Google search to see if there might be a free software package that you can download.


Warning: Always be careful when you download free software from unknown sources, as it may contain malware.

Understanding the ECF File Extension

Some software developers share a common file format, which is why Exchange Extended Configuration File, Micrografx Media Manager, and Outlook Add-in File all use the ECF file format. However, some files are intended to be opened in binary format, which means it must be opened by the program that created it.

If you don't have the software in which your ECF file was created on your PC, you may be able to open it by setting your default file associations to open ECF files in a similar program, such as Micrografx Media Manager, or Outlook Add-in File, or any other software that uses ECF files.
