PCM file - 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.

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.
