.ipr File Extension

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

what is a .ipr file?

When users create project files using the InstallShield Professional program, these project files are saved as IPR files. This is why IPR files are known as InstallShield Professional Project Files. IPR files fall under the category developer files since they are files containing the project informaion such as the settings, the scripts, the directory structures as well the settings of installer dialogs which are needed for the installation packages created by the software to function. In other words, since the InstallShield Professional program is software used to create InstallScript-based installation packages, the IPR files contribute a lot to building these packages. They are usually created with the use of InstallShield Professional 3.x - 7.x. The InstallShield Professional program runs on a Windows operating system and it is software developed by Flexera Software. It is an application that makes the easy and quick development and building of reliable Windows Installer, possible.

how to open a .ipr file?

Flexera InstallShield

InstallShield is an application used to create software packages and MSI Installers for Windows that can be used for mobile, server, desktop and Web programs. It is the only software that can install Microsoft App-V [virtual] packages. The program generates an EXE file to be used on the target computer to be able to install payloads from the source computer [the computer that created it]. Registry settings, prerequisites and questions may be specified for the user to choose from upon installation. Projects created by InstallShield have IPR formats that contain project data such as scripts, installer dialog settings, directory structures and other settings. They store valuable information to create the installation packages. The latest version 2012 Spring has added support features for Visual Studio 2012 and Windows 8, while still supporting older and traditional programs. The database scripting abilities of Microsoft SQL Azure allows hybrid cloud deployments. It performs automatic downloads of patches and updates during runtime. It supports Enterprise transformation with its PowerShell Support and Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Support features. It has enhanced its Suite capabilities based on customer requests with its InstallShield 2012 Premier Suite Advanced UI feature. It has redesigned its wizard pages and wizard page editor to fit new generation users.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ipr 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, .ipr. 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.
