Full Answer

The fastest and the easiest way to open a PRN file is to double click on it and wait until the operating system or OS automatically selects which application to use to open the document; the OS often selects the incorrect one. Check for the file registry settings on Windows, and select an application such as notepad to see what is inside a PRN file and the cause of the encryption. A PRN can be associated with a DataCAD Windows Printer File, Printer Text File or other printer software programs.
