File association with the application to support it is carried out by the file extension. If, for example a .sdf file is associated with one of the applications from the list, then when you double click on the file, the operating system will run this application and open the .sdf file.

In addition, you can find on the site addresses of all required software for .sdf files. We try to provide addresses to the sites of manufacturers, so that appropriate programs could be downloaded from the most reliable source.

For some files, different software supports running the file, editing it, and even saving the data in a .sdf file, which makes working with the file difficult. That is why we created a continuously updated database to which we add information about the particular software. You also can develop our database by using the form included on the site.
