PCM file extension - LaserJet Printer Cartridge Metric for printer driver

What is pcm file? How to open pcm files?

File type specification:

System file type icon System file type

The pcm file extension was used for files that contain HP printer drives.

All HP PCL drivers have an option to install additional fonts or font DIMMs, but many of these font installers do not install Printer Cartridge Metrics (PCM) files.

HP Font Solutions products like Bar Codes and More or MICR DIMM come with PCM files, so these fonts cannot be installed or accessed from all Windows printers drivers. PCMs provide printer drivers with metrics required to select SIMM or cartridge fonts for Windows applications.

This pcm 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.

Help how to open:

It is not possible to open the pcm extension files.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .pcm 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.
