CV File Format

Microsoft CodeView information screen

The CV file extension is primarily associated with a CodeView file. CodeView was a debugger developed in 1985 by David Norris at Microsoft and included in the company's development toolset, as well as Visual Basic and other languages. 

CodeView was a full-screen application, rather than command line-oriented, and included multiple windows that the user could view simultaneously and manipulate, including a command window for input and a code window for debugged code in the context of source code.

CodeView was incorporated into the integrated development environment (IDE) with the release of Visual C++.
