open .job file

I received a file that finishes in a .job format.

How do I open this file?


how to open .job file

This site lists all extensions and gives links to software that will open files with them. Your .job extension is not listed.

After doing a google search for .job extension I discovered that this is a task scheduler file. **broken link removed** will tell you more about it.

You might find that Pads PowerPCB can open it. (An extension from the Perform days)

open job file

If the version of the job file is 6 or 7 you can open it with powerpcb versions 2.01, 3.51, 4.0, or 4.01. I am not sure about 5 as I do not use it.
If it is version 3 or 4 you have to open it with dos version 6 or 7, then save it as 6 or 7 then open it with one of these windows versions.
Converting from 3 or 4 might have some problems with copper polygons, I am not sure as I do not open version 3 or 4 files very often.
If you want me to convert the file for you pm it to me as I have most of these versions installed including v6 of perform for dos.

I think the Power PCB is able to convert the lod PADS job file
you can use import function

run file .job

Be sure your software is licensed and maintenence is paid.
