Opening PNF files

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

What is a PNF file?

Files that contain the .pnf file extension commonly store temporary files that are created by a program when an INF file is run on a user's computer.

These files contain pre-compiled setup information that is used during the setup of a computer application. If the PNF file is not found on the system during the application install, the user's system will usually generate the file automatically.

A PNF file contains a system-maintained configuration file. The PNF file is usually removed once the INF file has been closed.
