.SOL File

File extension: SOL
File type: MX SharedObject


Notes about the SOL 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 SOL file type is primarily associated with 'Flash' by Adobe Systems Incorporated. Adobe Flash, initially known as Shockwave Flash and popularly called simply Flash, refers to both the Adobe Flash Player and to the Adobe Flash Professional multimedia authoring program. The Flash Player, developed and distributed by Adobe Systems (which acquired Macromedia in a merger that was finalized in December 2005), is a client application available in most common web browsers. Shared objects are quite powerful: they offer real-time data sharing between objects that are persistent on the local location. You can think of local shared objects as cookies.
