File Extension CTG

Files that contain the CTG extension are associated with multiple programs and applications and various file types. The most common association is Canon PowerShot Pro, but the file extension can also be related to ChessBase and BMC Software. CTG files contain data and information related to the program that created the file.

If the CTG file extension is associated with Canon PowerShot Pro, it is a miscellaneous file type which stores data related to images created with the PowerShot Pro 70 digital camera. This version of Canon digital cameras was produced in the late 1990s.

CTG files created with ChessBase are a data file type that contains information related to chess strategies and analysis for a wide variety of chess games. ChessBase is a database which organizes chess information from a variety of games to allow the data to be analyzed for chess strategy improvements.

CTG file extensions related to BMC Software are a data file type that stores performance data for the PATROL software application. PATROL is distributed by BMC Software and is used to deliver data analysis to end users in the engineering industry. The software application is part of the ProactiveNet Performance Management productivity suite.

How to Open CTG Files

Since CTG files are associated with multiple programs and applications, double click on the file to see if it will automatically open in a default program you have installed on your PC. CTG files can consist of different file types, so you may already have a program which will open the file.

CTG files that are related to Canon PowerShot really have no reason to be opened since the purpose of the file is to provide data and information for photos and images that are stored in different folders on the memory card. When you remove the photos from the memory card, CTG files are removed along with the corresponding file. Converting the files to another format is also not an option since the data associated with the image cannot be converted to a different image format.

If the CTG files are created with ChessBase, you must use the ChessBase program to open them. ChessBase is compatible with the Windows operating system and can be downloaded from the ChessBase website. You can also obtain apps for the iPad and iPhone to open CTG files on your mobile device.

CTG file extensions that are associated with PATROL can be opened using the PATROL software application, which is available for download on the BMX website. PATROL is compatible with the Windows operating system and can also be substituted with BMC PATROL DashBoard. PATROL DashBoard is available on the BMC website and is a web-based application.
