PDB file extension - Microsoft Linker input database file

What is pdb file? How to open pdb files?

The PDB file extension is associated with the Microsoft Linker a Visual Studio tool used to  links Common Object File Format (COFF) object files and libraries to create a executable (.exe) file or dynamic-link library (DLL).

Object (.obj) files compiled using the /Zi option contain the name of a program database (PDB). You do not specify the object's PDB file name to the linker; LINK uses the embedded name to find the PDB if it is needed. This also applies to debuggable objects contained in a library; the PDB for a debuggable library must be available to the linker along with the library.

Help how to open PDB files:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert file with extension PDB:

As far as we know, this .pdb 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.
