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

what is a .ofm file?

The OFM file extension is known as the OmniForm Form file format which was originally developed by Scansoft but they merged with Nuance Communications in 2005. It is a file format used for document converter and has the capability to turn one type of document, such as a Word document, into another type like PDF, XML, RTF or Microsoft InfoPath forms automatically. It does not require any additional conversion software. The file serves as intermediary between the different document forms. The OFM format contains digital signatures, attachments, field validation, calculations, and automatic form fill from previously entered data. It can only be opened in the OmniForm application and databases are automatically created for each form for easy data analysis. To ensure security and privacy of data it uses industry standard data transmission encryption. It also allows you to turn hard copies of forms into electronic forms with ease with its scanner capability. Files in OFM format can be opened with Nuance Communications OmniForm in Microsoft Windows platforms.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ofm 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, .ofm. 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.
