What is LIB file?

A .LIB file is a library file that is provided as an input file to the Linker. The LIB files include the COFF (Common Object File Format) standard library files and the COFF import library files. The standard library files contain the object files and the import library file contains export information used in other programs. The LIB tool is used to create the object library file and the import library file.

Programs that support LIB file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the LIB file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the LIB file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the LIB file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the LIB file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the LIB file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the LIB file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
