How to Open RSD Files
Since RSD 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. RSD files can consist of different file types, so you may already have a program which will open them.
If the RSD files are related to Sun Microsystems, you can open them using XnView, which is an open source graphics file viewer available as a free download on the XnView website. You can also use GIMP, which is a free program that allows you to open and edit images in a wide variety of formats. GIMP is available for download on the GIMP.org website. Both XnView and GIMP are multiplatform and compatible with Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
RSD files associated with Microsoft Windows can be opened using the Windows operating system. There is really no reason to open this type of RSD file as it is located in the System32 directory and is an essential part of the operating system.
If the RSD files are created with Resort Software, you must have Resort Software installed to open and view the files. Resort Software is available as a free trial download on the Resort Software website and is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X.
RSD files created with RapidSketch can be opened using the Utilant RapidSketch program, which is available as a 15-day free trial on the RapidSketch website.

Keep in mind if you use a program other than RapidSketch, you may lose some of the functionality and formatting in the original RSD file.
