.rsc File Extension

Developer: Nokia
File type: Symbian Application Compiled Resource File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .rsc. Files with the file extension .rsc can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .rsc files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .rsc file?

The Symbian Application Compiled Resource File is stored in the RSC format and is affixed with the RSC extension and is used by Symbian Operating System. These RSC files are generally classified as data files that contain compiled and machine-readable resources from RSS format to binary format. They consist of an APP file and a finished Symbian application which allows modification of program resources minus the APP recompilation by application developers. In simpler terms the Symbian OS application file will access the compiled resource file. This process is beneficial to localizing the application to various languages. The Symbian application is an open or free source operating system created for touchscreen devices, mobile devices, and smartphones. It is equipped with libraries, user interface, frameworks and common tools reference implementation. The Nokia Carbide.c++, Nokia WRT plug-ins, and Nokia Symbian rcomp software can be used in Microsoft Windows to access and view RSC files.

how to open a .rsc file?

Launch a .rsc file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .rsc file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .rsc files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .rsc file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .rsc file will open the correct application.

Nokia Carbide.c++

Nokia Carbide.c++

The Nokia Carbide c++ is an Eclipse-based IDE designed primarily for developers of Symbian devices. The Carbide c++ version is more lightweight, supports plug-ins and debugging with Eclipse EDC. The Nokia Carbide c++ features new application templates, fully featured debugger, powerful code editing and Symbian build tools support. It also features a Carbide c+++ Portal where plug-in extensions are available and can be downloaded. Some of the plug-in extensions available are the Code Scanner, AP Query Tool, Dependency Analyzer (appdep) and the Performance Investigator. System requirements for Carbide c++ installation include a 1.8 GHz processor, 700 MB of free disk space (a total of 2.2 GB disk space is needed if no SDK is installed), 2 GB of RAM and the Symbian SDK or S60. Nokia Carbide c++ will run in Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Nokia WRT plug-ins

Nokia WRT plug-ins

The Nokia Web Runtime (WRT) plug ins enable the creation of widgets on the S60 platform using a portable application framework. This Webkit web browser allows installation of widgets, management of applications and allows access to device features using a JavaScript API. Using Nokia Web Runtime allows developers to customize web pages so they can be installed on phones, appear readable on phones and run as a standalone application. There are three primary Nokia Web Runtime plug ins – Nokia WRT plug in 2.0 for Aptana Studio, Nokia WRT plug in for Microsoft Visual Studio and the Nokia WRT extension for Adobe Dreamweaver. The Nokia Web Runtime plug ins have versions available for 32- or 64-bit Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Vista, or Windows 7; 64-bit Apple Mac OS X 10.6 and 32-bit Ubuntu Linux 10.04.
Nokia Symbian rcomp

Nokia Symbian rcomp

Nokia Symbian rcomp is a program generally classified as an application development tool, and the specific features integrated into this program allow Symbian software developers to compile mobile application projects. Most of these Symbian application development programs work with the epocrc program, a tool used to create resource code and pass it to C++ reprocessors, which is in turn compiled with the use of Nokia Symbian rcomp. Once compiled using this software, the mobile application can be processed with the features integrated into the createsis program, which is an application that can be used to develop signed installers of the application. These installation packages are saved in the SIS format. Nokia Symbian rcomp was developed for the compilation of application projects intended for supported Nokia devices that run on compatible Symbian systems.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .rsc files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .rsc. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
