    .pcb extension

    I think you can use the tool named
    express pcb
    to open this file because express pcb uses the extension .pcb

    pcb extension

    Also Cadstar, Traxmaker and the old DOS version of Orcad PCB could use *.PCB as I remember. Post the header of the file if it's plain text, could be useful.

    open pcb file

    Greetings,

    Protel for Windows versions before Protel98 all used *.pcb extensions.

    Check out www.altium.com or www.protel.com

    The Protel DXP 2004 demo file is large, however it will open most *.pcb files for you.

    Another solution is to download the Circad demo from www.holophase.com This is a much smaller file to download.

    This will also open Protel/Autotrax *,pcb files.

    If you still have problems you could email it to me and I will see if I can open it for you.

    Regards,

    derekg

    *.pcb file

    grizli,

    moore cad programs use .pcb extension. Davorin is right.

    Open the .pcb file with worpad or other best ascii editor, then read the initial rows.

    In most cases you can read in initial rows, info on the prog and version, then you need the specific cad.

    skywalker.

    how to open .pcb files

    Well, difficult to answer that. There are lots of packages that use .pcb extn. Protel, & pads both use.pcb extn.

    If you try open these it says " unregognized file format".

    If you can read the header file then you might head in right direction.

    how to open pcb file

    Yes, in the header of the file there may well be a hint to the company that owns the rights to the file
    format.

    Perhaps opening it with word/notepad, etc may display somehting.
    Please do not PM me questions that are better asked in the PCB forum :)

    Re: How to open file that has PCB extension

    As well as helping you open various countless file extensions, FileCure works to make sure that your Windows computer deals with files smoothly. At times file formats can become associated with the wrong programs. For example, Microsoft Paint might be associated with your music files. Every time you try to listen to a new tune or audio joke that someone sent you as an .mp3 file, Paint tries to open and error occurs. With FileCure's Manage feature, it is easy to assign MP3 files to Windows Media Player, VLC Player or whichever music player you prefer. And keep it that way.
