What is OVA file extension?

The OVA extension is suitable for files that are used by system virtualization tools. These files are used to store information about the virtual machine. This is complete data that allows you to run such an image in a virtual environment. Virtualization of systems allows them to be tested without the need for actual installation on workstations. OVA files can be supported e.g. by VirtualBox or Vmware applications.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the OVA file.

What else may cause problems?
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the OVA file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the OVA file may be incorrectly linked (associated) with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this link by yourself. To do this, right-click on the OVA file # that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the OVA file should be solved forever.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the OVA file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
