The file extension MXI marks so-called extension information files for the website editor Adobe Dreamweaver and the graphics editor Adobe FireWorks. Mxi files contain information about extensions or plugins that have the extension mxp. Mxi files are XML files that describe a related extension.
With plugins programs can be added to new functionalities, for example the import and export of new formats.
mxp and MXI files can be installed by double-clicking. The opening Adobe Extension Manager can also be opened in Dreamweaver via the menu 'Help-> Manage Extensions'. Here you can install an extension via 'File-> Install extension'. The MXI file can also be used for installation if the mxp file is in the same directory and has the same name.

This may happen because no default application was associated with this type of files. To associate MXI files with given application, select "Open with" from drop-down menu (accessed by right-clicking on the file).
