The lib file extension is associated with a LINK that accepts COFF standard libraries and COFF import libraries, both of which usually have the extension .lib. Standard libraries contain objects and are created by the LIB tool. Import libraries contain information about exports in other programs and are created either by LINK when it builds a program that contains exports or by the LIB tool.

Windows NT uses a special format for the executable (image) files and object files. The format used in these files are referred to as Portable Executable (PE) or Common Object File Format (COFF) files. The name Portable Executable refers to the fact that executable files can run on more than one platform. This article describes in detail the internal features of PE/COFF file formats and its parameters.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .lib 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. > Source code and script file types
