File Extension LWTP

The file extension LWTP is associated with LimeWire, which is a P2P (peer-to-peer) file sharing application created by LimeWire LLC. LimeWire is an open source file sharing application which is available to the public and works with multiple platforms. The original LimeWire software is currently unavailable under court order due to issues with copyright infringement.

The LWTP file extension is a setting and themes file type which stores themes for changing the appearance of LimeWire software. LWTP files are commonly stored in the LimeWire folder when you download the file sharing software application. The files are accessed by clicking on View on the toolbar of the LimeWire software program and then choosing Apply Skins from the menu. Under Apply Skins you can select the theme from the LWTP file stored in the LimeWire folder you want to use to change the look of LimeWire.

How to Open LWTP Files

Typically you would be able to open the file extension LWTP using the LimeWire PSP file sharing software application which was formerly available on the LimeWire website. The software is designed for use with Windows, Mac OS X, and the Linux operating system.

Since the court order dated October 26, 2010 discontinued the availability of the LimeWire application, there are limitations on how you can open an LWTP file. There are open source PSP file sharing applications which are being made available online; however, the court order states that the applications are considered to be unauthorized if they carry the name LimeWire. Therefore, the only option is to open the LWTP file using the original LimeWire P2P file sharing application if you happen to have it installed on your PC.

If there is a reason for opening and viewing the contents of the file extension LWTP, you can try opening the file using a text editing program. If you are using Windows, you can use WordPad, Notepad, PSPad, or TextPad. For Mac OS X, you can try to open LWTP files with Apple TextEdit, AbiSource AbiWord, MacroMates TextMate, BareBones Software BBEdit, or MacVim. For the Linux operating system, you can use BSD Vi, AbiSource AbiWord, gEdit, GNU Emacs, Nano Editor, or Vim to open and view the contents of LWTP files.

If opening LWTP files using a text editing program is unsuccessful, another option to try is a developer software application such as Visual Studio or Dreamweaver. Microsoft Visual Studio is an application used by developers to create software programs and is available on the Microsoft website. Microsoft Visual Studio is designed for use with the Windows operating system.

Dreamweaver is part of the Adobe CS6 Creative Suite of applications and is an application used to develop website components. Dreamweaver CS6 is available in a free trial version on the Adobe website and is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X.
