EVM file extension - Windows session configuration

What is evm file? How to open evm files?

File type specification:

Configuration file type icon Configuration file type

evm file icon: evm filetype icon

The evm file extension is related to Microsoft Windows operating system and used for session configuration files from Service Control Manager (SCM).

The maximum file size, which is ordinarily 50MB, can be set from an environment variable, named SCMLogSize. This variable’s value is a decimal number of MB. Everything else about the log file is hard-coded.

The evm log file is operated in circular mode, but SERVICES itself manages log files for previous sessions. Each time that SERVICES starts, it renames the existing scm.evm file to a backup.

There can be as many as five such backups, with names from scm.evm.1 to scm.evm.5 inclusive. Thus, whether you knew it or not, whether you wanted it or not, your switched-off computer typically has a very detailed record of what SERVICES executed in each of the previous five times that you started Windows.
