File Extension DMP

.DMP File

File extension: DMP
File type: Screen or Memory Dump

Notes about the DMP 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 DMP file type is primarily associated with 'Screen or Memory Dump'. One .DMP file that has popped up in questions before is VETLOG.DMP. A search gives two possibilities for this file: Viewpoint Media Player, which is a browser add-on for displaying 3D files and, earlier, a file apparently associated with eTrust Anti-Virus. The Viewpoint Media Player is the more likely answer as the earlier search that yielded the AV software likely keyed on something that the AV software found and not the software itself. In either case, if you one or the other installed and are having problems with this file contact the vendor concerned directly.
