Open V2 File

Files that contain the V2 file extension are generally associated with the Microsoft Live Messenger IM application. Users can use this instant messaging application to "chat" online in real time with their online contacts. With this application, users can also share videos and images with their online contacts and integrate the program with the social networks to which they belong.

V2 files can contain data files and event logs for the Live Messenger application. These are generic data files used by the Live Messenger IM application. The V2 files used by this program are typically stored in a text-based file format.

How to open the V2 file?

After double-clicking the icon of the unknown file, the system should open it in the default software that supports it. If this does not happen, download and install the Windows Live Messenger software and then manually associate the file with it. It is important to highlight that Windows Live Messenger is already disabled and replaced by Skype, being at the time an instant messaging client owned by Microsoft and designed to work on PCs with Microsoft Windows, mobile devices with Windows Phone, iOS and Android, among others. Windows Live Messenger was a part of the Windows Essentials software package, until it was discontinued.

Possible problems when working with V2 files

Generally, opening and working with a V2 file can be inconvenient because the only software that registers it is discontinued. However, if you have installed the software (with patches) and you still cannot open the file, you may have one (or more) of the following possibilities:

  • Corrupted V2 file.
  • Incorrect associations of the V2 file in registry entries.
  • Removal of the Windows registry associated with the V2.
  • Incomplete installation of Messenger Live.
  • The V2 file that we open is infected with malicious software.

As mentioned above, files with a V2 extension belong to a software that is already disabled and discontinued, therefore, many inconveniences can occur when trying to open and operate a file of this nature.
