.pvl File Extension

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

what is a .pvl file?

Files under the PVL file format are data files referenced by the Instalit DOS/Windows installation toolkit. The Instalit toolkit offers features and functions to enable the installation of different programs and sequences. PVLlibrary files are data library used to store source code and scrip to include installation procedures. Such scripts and source codes are also used to install applications. PVL files can also store various commands and process details which users can insert into applications for installation. Users can refer to PVL library files to create new processes. The Instalit application and PVL files were developed for DOS/Windows environments, but are no longer developed or supported. To view and edit PVL library files, the authoring software must be used.

how to open a .pvl file?

Launch a .pvl 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 .pvl file will open it.

In this case, when you try to open a .pvl file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .pvl file will open the correct application.

HPI Instalit

HPI Instalit

HPI Instalit is an application that creates install programs for software. Applications created by Instalit are used as a program shell and the installation tool for its system. It uses 3 main windows that are programmable and editable to suit the user’s needs. These three are the greeting window, copy window and program window. Users can customize the windows by changing the border settings and appearance, window and text lines or by adding or editing the text. There are other windows used by Instalit. You need to key in the installed program’s destination in one window. The window displays the source file location and the destination of resources that the installed program needs. The copy window shows the status of the file copy from the installed file. This will also show possible errors such as similar existing directories and file names. HP Instalit also creates installers for pre-existing applications. Programmers can create tools using Instalit windows. PVL files act as the program’s libraries containing the source code for the processes operated by the program. Aside from the ability to modify windows settings, the user can also create new processes by using the commands inside the PVL file. When the user uses a command, the reference file within the PVL file will verify the definition of the task to be done.

a word of warning

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