Opening CMP files

Did your computer fail to open a CMP file? We explain what CMP files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your CMP files.

What is a CMP file?

The .cmp file extension is most commonly associated with the Siemens Solid Edge Wire Harness Design application. This software is an eCAD application that allows designers to create the wire routing and cable harness designs used for organizing the wires in a 3D assembly file.

The .cmp file extension is also used for Microsoft SharePoint Server backup files, CorelDRAW Postscript printer header files, Microsoft Internet Explorer custom menu plug-in files and Microsoft Word for DOS user dictionary files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
