File Extension EVT

.EVT File

File extension: EVT
File type: Event Viewer Log File

Notes about the EVT 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 EVT file type is primarily associated with 'eventvwr.msc' by Microsoft Corporation.

EVT files are Microsoft Event Viewer logs that can be viewed using Event Viewer. To launch Event Viewer go to Start, Run and type eventvwr.msc.

You might not be able to view all event messages in an EVT file that was created on another computer. Events are recorded through .DLLs which are required to read a particular message. If a particular .DLL is not available on your PC you will get an error message for that event.
