What is a .SKX file?

The file extension .SKX represents an XLANG Schedule File. This type of file is created by the Microsoft BizTalk Orchestration Designer software. It originates from a schedule drawing file with the extension .SKV. When you use BizTalk Orchestration Designer to process an .SKV file, it generates an .SKX file.

The .SKX file is formatted in XML, which is a way to store data in a structured text format. This file contains a list of tasks that are designed to be carried out by the XLANG Scheduler Engine, a component of Microsoft BizTalk Server. These tasks are part of a workflow or process that has been defined using BizTalk Orchestration Designer.

To open and work with an .SKX file, you should use Microsoft BizTalk Orchestration Designer. This is the program specifically designed to handle such files, allowing you to view, edit, and manage the tasks within the file.

If you need to make changes to the tasks or the workflow contained in an .SKX file, you cannot edit the .SKX file directly. Instead, you must go back to the original .SKV file that was used to create it. After making your changes to the .SKV file, you must recompile it to generate a new .SKX file with the updated schedule and tasks. This ensures that the workflow or process runs correctly with the new modifications in the XLANG Scheduler Engine.
