Notes about the $DX file extension:
Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.
The $DX file type is primarily associated with 'Ca Visual Objects Platform for Developer (CAVO)' by CA. CA is the new name for Computer Associates. Visual Objects simplifies the integration of Windows and browser clients, web servers, middleware and back-end database systems. The .APP file usually has an associated .IDX index file and perhaps a .$DX backup index file. A *.CDP may also be present.
