Have you encountered a problem with a WCM file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a WCM file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your WCM file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


Both the word processor WordPerfect and the presentation program Presentations use the extension WCM for files containing macros. These macros contain a sequence of eg recorded instructions and thus automate certain operations in the programs. They can be used to do repetitive tasks faster.

Both applications are part of the WordPerfect Office suite and not available separately.

How to open a WCM file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the WCM file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a WCM file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support WCM files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a WCM file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all WCM files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with WCM there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the WCM file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the WCM file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
