File extensions tell Windows which programs are used to open different types of files. Common file extensions include .txt, .doc, .jpeg, etc. Windows stores information about each file extension (including File Extension MOBI) in the Windows Registry.

Why?

If you receive errors when trying to open MOBI files, it could be for the following reasons:

Missing Host Application: Windows doesn't have a default application that is capable of opening, reading and rendering information embedded using the MOBI file specification.

Corrupt File Type Association: The default host application may exist for MOBI file type but its file association with MOBI files was corrupted in Windows Registry.

How to:

We recommend that you download and install PC Health Advisor to fix both types of issues:
