The EX$ file extension was used for compressed EXE file. These files could be found in installation packages of early Microsoft Products.

The .ex$ file could be decompressed using UNPACK.EXE.

This ex$ 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.

Help how to open:

Use compatible tools to work with *.ex$ files.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .ex$ file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
