How To Open A .Lit File

*Updates: Alternative for Microsoft Reader (Read Here)

Referring to your question:
Carmen's QuestionQuestion 1:

Before this, I have not come across any .lit files or extensions before, but after I "Googled" around, I came to know what is it all about. By the way, thanks for bringing this up. =)

So basically, the file that you received is obviously a .lit file. You will need to download Microsoft Reader. Download the file to My Documents or somewhere else, then open the reader and select your book.

Download Microsoft Reader


1) Click the download link.

2) In the File Download box, select Save this program to disk.

3) Save the file named "msreadersetup.exe" to your hard drive.

4) When the download is completed, locate msreadersetup.exe on your hard drive and double-click the file to begin installation.

If you are running Internet Explorer 5.0 or later, a dialog box will appear when the download is completed, and you will be prompted to begin installation.

5) You'll be prompted to activate your copy of Microsoft Reader. This important step is required to purchase premium eBook titles that have been encrypted for distribution through the activation process.

If you currently have an activated version of Microsoft Reader 1.5 or 1.51 on your laptop or desktop computer, make sure that you use the same Passport or Hotmail account to re-activate the new version after downloading it. (You must use the same account information to open and read the Owner Exclusive content that you have already purchased.)

6) When installation is complete, you may be prompted to restart your PC. After the restart, the installation will continue. We strongly recommend activating your device at time of installation so you can purchase and open the Owner Exclusive premium content you may already have.

Question 2:

I think you mean a .rar format is referring to a file being compressed or zipped. The file holds 1 or more files in it. I'm not sure is this what you're asking for. =)

The most common softwares to use are WinZip 7-Zip or WinRAR. Just choose one.

Download WinRAR (1.15 MB)

For me, I only have experience using WinRAR.

Here is some tutorial how to unzip the file:

WinRAR TutorialIf you still have problem using either of the unzipping software, just go and Google it up.

The software to read a .PDF is Foxit PDF Reader or Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can read my previous recommendation on PDF Readers.

P.S: To Carmen - if I didn't answered your question just let me know in the Comments box. So if it was what you're asking for and it solve your problem, just write me a testimonial Comment. =)

P.P.S: If I missed something in this post, feel free to add them in the Comment box. Thanks a lot.
