HPC file extension - HP font language

What is hpc file? How to open hpc files?

File type specification:

Various data file type icon Various data file type

The hpc file extension is mainly related to Hewlett-Packard fonts. The file is also used by Microsoft Windows CE Services, more specific by Microsoft ActiveSync when performing file conversions between Pocket PC formats (PWI) and Windows formats (RTF).

In this context, it is created by a certain function in ceutil.dll before the conversion actually takes place. It is then mapped as a memory mapped file and further accessed as a memory area by all Pocket PC to RTF conversion DLLs. It is used as a global storage pool to exchange information between various ActiveSync modules.

Deleting it does no harm. It will be created automatically, until next conversion or synchronization with Pocket PC. Unfortunately Microsoft didn't include a delete routine in their clean-up code.

This hpc file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .hpc file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
