PE file extension - PE - Portable Executable file
What is pe file? How to open pe files?
File type specification:
The PE file extension is related to a PE format which is portable across all Microsoft 32-bit operating systems.
MICROSOFT INTRODUCED this executable file format with Windows NT. It is called the Portable Executable (PE) format because it is supposed to be portable across all 32-bit operating systems by Microsoft. The same PE format executable can be executed on any version of Windows NT, Windows 95, and Win32s. Also, the same format is used for executables for Windows NT running on processors other than Intel x86, such as MIPS, Alpha, and Power PC. The 32-bit DLLs and Windows NT device drivers also follow the same PE format.
