Notes about the MSM 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 MSM file type is primarily associated with 'Windows Installer' by Microsoft Corporation. The database of a merge module contains all the installation properties and setup logic for the module. It is essentially a simplified installer database or .MSI file. Standard merge module database files are indicated by an .MSM extension.
