Notes about the BIX file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The BIX file type is primarily associated with 'BIX Archiver'. No longer produced. A BIX program is available on Igor Pavlov's page. The BIX routines were incorporated into 7-Zip but that program does not support the BIX format.
