Opening NRL files

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

What is a NRL file?

The .nrl file extension is used for a data file that is formatted in plain text. These NRL files are also known as Autonomy Interwoven link files. These contain links that point to a resource stored in Interwoven CMS (Content Management System), which is a network data management program that was created by Autonomy Interwoven.

This software provides users with tools for sharing, managing and collaborating on digital projects within a network. This program runs on Windows PCs. These NRL files give network users easy access to reference materials that are stored in the Interwoven CMS.

Since these .nrl files are saved in plain text format, text editors like Notepad may be used to open and view the content of these NRL files. An NRL file may also store document information like version numbers and library names among other metadata details.

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.
