What is an .TSW file?

.TSW is NI TestStand workspace

The tsw file extension is associated with the NI TestStand, development environment for Microsoft Windows that allows users to develop and deploy automated test and validation systems.

The tsw file stores settings for TestStand workspace.

How to open:

Use NI TestStand to work with *.tsw files.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .tsw file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
