XSLT files are source code files in the XSL transformation programming language, which is used to transform XML documents, for example to HTML. The XSLT file sets the rules for the transformation. These are processed by so-called XLST processors, which are located, for example, in modern browsers.
XSLT files are pure text files that can be opened and edited in any text editor. However, there are several developer editors that simplify working with XSLT files. The Eclipse development environment can be extended to handle XSLT files with the OrangevoltXSLT plugin or the Web Tools Platform Project.
Most often resolving problems with opening XSLT files is very simple. Just install an appropriate program that supports such files. All of the listed programs support XSLT files, but may vary in offered function and purpose. Some programs may be capable only of viewing contents of XSLT files or offer file conversion options, but may not be capable of editing such files.
It is possible that although a compatible program has been installed on user’s system, it is not used by the system to open it. This may happen because no default application was associated with this type of files. To associate XSLT files with given application, select "Open with" from drop-down menu (accessed by right-clicking on the file). Then select from the list the program or application you want to be used to open this type of file. If the FileMaker Pro applications is not on the list, select "Browse" option in order to manually locate the directory where FileMaker Pro has been installed.
Sometimes problems with opening XSLT files may not lie with the application itself, but can arise due to other causes, such as:
