File Extension RUN

.RUN File

File extension: RUN
File type: Executable File

Notes about the RUN 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 RUN file type is primarily associated with 'AMOS' by Alpha Micro. RUN files: binary executable files from the AMOS operating system. RUN filex can be created using a BAS file (Basic program source code) and the compiler file COMPIL.LIT, that converts a .BAS file to a .RUN file. To use this file you need BASIC.LIT or BASICP.LIT. AMOS executables and interpreters (like Basic files using BRUN40.EXE in DOS or Java precompiled files using JVIEW.EXE OR WJVIEW.EXE in DOS or WINDOWS).
