.wpw File Extension

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

what is a .wpw file?

Files in the WPW extension are also known as developer files, and these can be created using the WinDev software, an application developer program from PC Soft. This software is particularly an IDE application which can be used for the development of mobile programs and Microsoft Windows-based scripts for desktop and laptop computers. Application windows are stored in WPW files associated to specific WinDev projects. Each of these files with the .wpw extension correspond to particular applications developed using the WinDev program. These application windows serve as preview windows and dialogue boxes for WinDev application development projects. When the WinDev software needs to display these application windows, the program locates the WPW files associated to the WinDev projects and references the data stored in those WPW files, so it can display the data contained in those WPW files, which may include a wide variety of visual elements such as buttons, drop down boxes, check boxes, text fields and text messages among others. The WPW is for applications developed for mobile platforms, while WinDev software development projects for desktops and laptops running on Microsoft Windows systems are stored in files appended with the WDW extension.

how to open a .wpw file?

Launch a .wpw 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 .wpw file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .wpw files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .wpw file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .wpw file will open the correct application.

PC Soft WinDev

PC Soft WinDev

WinDev is the main application that created WPW files and this software was developed by PC SOFT. It is known as an IDE or an integrated development environment that uses 4GL or fourth generation language. The software runs on Windows operating systems and supports English and French languages. This software contains tools that allow users to develop applications using a set of algorithms and forms that are standard and predetermined. This software, however, is mostly used for data-centric application development, which is why it comes with editors that allow users to develop prototypes as well as convert them into full-blown applications. WinDev is also a tool used to generate Java applications and other applications supported by the .NET platform. This software also features its own DBMS and Hyper File although commercial databases are also supported by this application via ODBC, etc. This tool is used by developers who want to reduce the cost and save time developing applications.

a word of warning

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