Opening NIB files

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

What is a NIB file?

Files containing the .nib extension are most commonly associated with Interface Builder resource files. Interface Builder allows programmers to design and test application interfaces. The NIB files contain static representations of the objects used by the interface and how those objects are used by the associated application. The NIB files are referenced by the user's computer memory as needed.

The .nib file extension is also used for Corel Graphics10 Photopoint files, Disk image files and Adobe AIR 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.
