EMM file extension - Expanded memory manager file
What is emm file? How to open emm files?
File type specification:
The emm file extension is used by Expanded memory manager (EMM), a device driver that manages and configures expanded memory. EMMs are only required in MS-DOS, because other operating systems access computer memory in a different way.
During the days of expanded memory, users did typically utilize the EMM, which was included with their version of DOS. However, there were other solutions, including the popular QEMM (Quarterdeck EMM) from Quarterdeck. Third-party products, such as QEMM, tended to offer greater performance, configure memory better, and did offer much better diagnostic and monitoring tools.
Programs that use expanded memory are obsolete today, so most current don't need to worry about EMMs and the latest OS do not use expanded memory at all. As such, the third-party EMMs have disappeared along with their creators.
This emm file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.
This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.
