.slf File Extension

Developer: Symantec
File type: Symantec License File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .slf. Files with the file extension .slf can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .slf files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .slf file?

SLF files are known as Symantec License Files since they are used by Symantec software for software license activation. Since Symantec is a brand of anti-virus software, activating this program requires a license and SLF files are the files containing the activation code for the said software by which these codes are important to prove that the user legally bought the license for the said software and can run the program already. SLF files are important as they also contain license information proving that a user can legally use the software. SFL files can either be compressed files; document and data; as well as archived files formatted using a popular form of coding called the extensible markup language. While not all Symantec products utilize SLF files for license activation, applications such as Symantec AntiVirus Small Business Edition, Enterprise Vault versions 7.0 as well as Ghost Solutions Suite versions 2.0 use these files.

how to open a .slf file?

Launch a .slf file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .slf file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .slf files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .slf file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .slf file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .slf files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .slf. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
