What is CC file?

Most often, files in the C++ Source Code Format are called CC files. Software that can read and write CC files is available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows-based devices. CC files are part of a group called “Developer Files.” There are also 1199 other types of files in our database, so we have a lot of space. Even though Microsoft Visual Studio is the most common one, 12 other tools can be used to work with CC files. Microsoft Corporation came up with the Microsoft Visual Studio software development environment. If you want more information about the software and CC files, go to the official site of the developer.

Applications that support CC file extension

Software that can open CC files is shown in the table that comes with this text. They are arranged by the type of computer they can run on, which makes sense. If you have a computer that can open other types of files, you can open CC files, too. Even though the files in question can be moved to other devices, whether they are mobile or stationary, not all operating systems can deal with them the right way.

Programs that are compatible with CC format.


Windows Notepad

NotePad++ text editor


C++ Builder

Microsoft Visual Studio

Visual C++





Apple Xcode



GNU Emacs

How to open a file with the CC extension?

The reason why you can’t open files with the CC extension can be a lot of different things. Fortunately, most common problems with CC files can be solved quickly and easily without having to know a lot about computer technology. The steps below will show you how to fix the problem, and they will help you do that.

1. Download Microsoft Visual Studio software

A lack of software that can open and work with CC files is almost always the cause of problems. When this happens, you can fix it by installing Microsoft Visual Studio or another program that is compatible with it. This could be Dev-C++, PSPad, or Visual C++. The following is a complete list of programs that can read and write CC files. They are organized by system platform. You can download Microsoft Visual Studio safely if you go to the Microsoft Corporation website and download from the official repositories there.

2. Verify and, if necessary, update the Microsoft Visual Studio version.

As long as you keep having trouble opening CC files even after installing Microsoft Visual Studio, it could be that your software is not up to date. Check out the developer’s website to see if there is a newer version of Microsoft Visual Studio on the market. In addition, software developers may add compatibility with newer file formats through updates to their software. People who use Microsoft Visual Studio may not be able to use CC files because they don’t work together. Microsoft Visual Studio should be able to open all of the file formats that previous versions of the program were able to open without a hitch.

3. Assign Microsoft Visual Studio to CC files

You need to make sure that the most recent version of Microsoft Visual Studio is set to be the default application for opening CC files after the software is set up. The next step should be clear. The process is simple and not very dependent on the operating system.

Choosing the first-choice app in Windows

When you right-click the CC file, choose the option that says “Open with” from the menu that comes up.

Pick Choose another app → More apps

If you want to look for another app on this computer, choose “Look for another app on this computer.” In the Microsoft Visual Studio folder where it was set up, make sure that the Always use this app for CC files option is set to “Yes.”

In Mac OS X, you can choose the first-choice app.

By right-clicking on the CC file you want and selecting Information, you can get to the file menu.

Find the option to open with – if it isn’t there, click the title.

Then, choose the right software and click the Change all button to save your changes.

Finally, a message should say, “This change will be made to all files with the CC extension.” To make sure you made the right choice, click the Continue button.

4. Check the CC to make sure it’s working right.

If the problem doesn’t go away after following the steps in the previous steps, you should look at the CC file in question. Most likely, the file has been damaged and can’t be opened, so it can’t be used.

Check to see if the CC has a computer virus.

If the CC has malware, it may not be able to be opened. Use an antivirus program to check the file right away, or run a system scan to make sure everything is safe. If the CC file is infected, follow the steps below.

Make sure the structure of the CC file is still the same.

Did you get the CC file from someone else? He or she should send it again. The file may have been copied in the wrong way, causing the data to lose its integrity and making the file unusable. Internet downloads with the “CC” extension can sometimes fail, leaving you with a file that doesn’t work properly. If you need to re-download the file, do so.

Make sure you have the right permissions.

A person may need to have administrative rights in order to get access to files. Log in as an administrator to see if this solves the problem.

Make sure your device meets the system requirements for Microsoft Visual Studio.

If your computer doesn’t have enough space, you can try shutting down all of the programs that are running and restarting the computer.

Make sure you have the most up-to-date drivers, system updates, and patches.

Regular updates to your computer’s system, driver, and software help keep it safe. This may also help avoid problems with C++ Source Code Format files. In some cases, out-of-date drivers or software could be the reason why you can’t use a peripheral device that you need to process CC files.
