Notes about the AUX 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 AUX file type is primarily associated with 'ChiWriter'. ChiWriter is a scientific multifont word processor. It was developed and, until 1995, commercially distributed by Horstmann Software Development Corporation, USA. It was designed to work in an MS-DOS environment, though it can also be launched from an icon under Windows 3.xx or Windows 95. It creates its own graphic screen, and some of the resolutions offer mouse support. However, the lack of true Windows support probably led to the downfall of ChiWriter. Since 1995 Horstmann is out of business, and all support for ChiWriter has stopped.

Other applications associated with file type AUX:

  • Geospatial Imaging (ERDAS IMAGINE and LPS Data File) by Leica Geosystems LLCAn AUX file holds metadata for non-ERDAS IMAGINE raster file formats (IMG). Much of the metadata is extensive and cannot be stored in files such JPEG, TIFF, etc. ESRI licenses AUX from Leica Geosystems. If the user deletes it, while it will be recreated with display and processing, much of the metadata will be lost. IMG is a raster data file created within ERDAS IMAGINE, a Geospatial Imaging program. The IMG data file holds all image and metadata in one container. Some data contained with a typical IMG file are: image data, image statistics, database attributes, transformations, ground control points, reduced resolution layers (aka pyramid layers), map coordinates, horizontal and vertical projection and datum, processing genealogy, and LUT stretches. These same data may be conatined in AUX files if the user wishes to use data formats other than IMG.
  • MegaHAL by Ai ResearchMegaHAL is a conversation simulator: a computer program which responds in natural language to what you type, written by Jason Hutchens. Related links: How MegaHAL Works
