What is an A6P file?
An A6P file is a project file created by version 6 of Adobe Authorware. It contains an in-development eLearning application, which a user can edit and publish from within Authorware. You can open A6P files in Authorware 6 and later versions.
Adobe Authorware was an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that teachers and businesses used to create eLearning applications. It allowed users to design, add content to, and even manually script their applications, before publishing them via CD, DVD, or a network.
Version 6 of Authorware saved users' app creation projects as A6P files. Saving a project as an A6P file allowed a user to continue editing their app, even after publication. For example, if a user found an issue with their published app, they could open the app's A6P file, fix the issue, and re-publish the fixed app.
NOTE: Adobe discontinued Authorware in 2007, after releasing Authorware 7.
How to open an A6P file
You can open an A6P file with Adobe Authorware 6 (Windows, Mac) and later versions. If you no longer have access to Authorware, you likely will not be able to open your A6P file.
