CDD File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open a CDD file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .CDD files.

What is a CDD file?

Files that contain the .cdd file extension are most commonly used by the ConceptDraw PRO software application.

ConceptDraw PRO is a business drawing software program. The CDD files that are created by this software can store flowcharts, technical drawings and business diagrams that can be used in reports, network diagrams and other business tools. The CDD files can be exported into the PDF format to allow for the distribution of the files amongst users who do not have the software application.

The .cdd file extension is also used for the Chromeleon software. These files contain device driver files that are used by the program. The CD-Architect software also uses the CDD file extension for its device driver files.
