Information about the .ecp (ecp) file type

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .ecp (ecp) file type.

ESRI Core Product authorization file.

The .ecp ESRI core product authorization file is part of the license management of ESRI products. A .ecp file will be delivered once a product has been registered and it is then used by the ESRI Software Authorization Wizard to authorise the software.

The .ecp file contains:

  • Product name
  • Version number
  • License ID
  • Expiration date
  • Authentication string

The .ecp ESRI Core Product authorization file is also sometimes referred to as an "ESRI Copy Protection file", "ESRI Product key file" and "ESRI license file".

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .ecp files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .ecp. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
