Hi

I have been sent an email with a  .JP2 file attachment that I am unable to open on my Windows 7 desktop PC. When I checked in Control Panel > Default Programs > Associate a File Type with a Program, the JP2 file type has "Unknown Application" alongside the entry.

Does anyone know how to open this type of file ?

I have looked on the internet and found a number of sites offering free software downloads but from comments made not all work successfully. Some comments caution the Installers are not clean. Consequently I am reluctant to download and install anything as I don't know which ones are free of malware etc.

Any advice would be really appreciated.

Thank you

Laurence

Right click the jp2 file and select Open With > Choose Default Program. Select Chrome or Firefox. Chrome and Firfox can both open this file according to here.

 

I went to a site with a Jp2 file and downloaded it. It will not open in chrome or firefox.

 

Infranview with the plugin package is supposed to open jp 2000 files.

Fastone Image Viewer supports jp 2000 out of the box. Free for home users

Hi John_21

Success !!!!    I downloaded the  exe file for the Faststone Image Viewer from the link you provided and installed it on my PC.  Ran the application and it worked like a charm. I have set the file association for JP2 files to open with that application as default.

Thank you for your assistance. Your help has been very much appreciated.

Laurence
