Does the site or source of the file have information on what type it is?  We are really going to just be guessing at the type of file.  This site ( has information on the most common sources of files with an .ace extension.  If it is a WinAce compressed file then it can be opened with the Zip programs listed.  There may be other Zip programs that also support that type of compression and file.

I would be careful just guessing at the file type and use the website or source of the file for information first.  The page I provided also list other programs that use the .ace extension and so I would look through that list before just trying the first option.  If the file is really important then I recommend opening making a backup before trying to open just as a caution in case the file is damaged when the program tries to open it.
