.cpf File Extension

Developer: IBM
File type: Cognos Project File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .cpf. Files with the file extension .cpf can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .cpf files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .cpf file?

Files stored in the CPF format are specifically known as Cognos project files but are generally categorized as data files. Data files have content that are used or referenced by associated applications used to create, open or edit the data stored in those files. The Cognos Framework Manager software is particularly used to create, open, edit or modify the content of these CPF files, and IBM developed the Cognos Business Intelligence software to provide this support to Microsoft Windows system users. The former application is classified as a data modeling applet bundled with the Cognos Business Intelligence program. "Metamodel" details used to manage and organize the info saved in these CPF files are from data stored in corresponding databases associated to the CPF file. Files affixed with the .cpf extension are also called project files because these CPF files can be created, opened and edited by a user with these programs. Users of Microsoft Windows-based platforms can install the Cognos Business Intelligence software from IBM to start creating, opening and editing the content of these CPF files.

how to open a .cpf file?

Launch a .cpf file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .cpf file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .cpf files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .cpf file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .cpf file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .cpf files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .cpf. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
