Notes about the OVL file extension:
Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.
The OVL file type is primarily associated with 'PDP-10'. The PDP-10 was a mainframe computer manufactured by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) from the late 1960s; the name stands for Programmed Data Processor model 10. The PDP-10 was eventually eclipsed by the VAX supermini machines. The PDP-10 product line cancellation was announced in 1983.
