VMC file extension - Virtual memory configuration

What is vmc file? How to open vmc files?

File type specification:

Configuration file type icon Configuration file type

vmc file icon: vmc filetype icon

The vmc file extension is related to the MS-DOS and DOS/4GW. The vmc file contains virtual memory configuration.

DOS/4GW is a 32-bit DOS extender that allows DOS programs to eliminate the 640 KB conventional memory limit by addressing up to 32 MB of extended memory on Intel 80386 and above machines.

This vmc 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:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert:

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.
