What is a WEBPNP file?

Printer driver package file used by Microsoft Windows; saved in the .CAB format and contains an install package for a printer driver; used for distributing printer drivers provided from websites or client networks.

More Information

WEBPNP files are often distributed using the Web Point-and-Print Protocol ([MS-WPRN]), which defines a method for downloading print drivers when a user clicks on a Web page link (an HTTP request), or when a client program makes a request for a driver. The website locates the appropriate driver and then returns a WEBPNP file to the requester. Once downloaded, the file can be opened to install the printer drivers.

WEBPNP files may contain the following contents:

  • Printer driver and installation files
  • An .INF setup file for the installation
  • A .BIN file specifying parameters needed to access printer configuration data
  • A .DAT file that includes any other printer setup data
WEBPNP files are executed by the Windows program wpnpinst.exe, which is located in the \Windows\System32\ directory.
