PRJ File Type

- The quick facts

What are PRJ files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a PRJ file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.

What is a PRJ file?

PRJ files have multiple uses, and Project is one of them.

Project File

Files that contain the .prj file extension are most commonly used to store project files. The .prj file extension is a generic extension that is used by a variety of different project applications. PRJ files typically contain the project settings and other project data, including references to other files that the related project may use.

Some applications that use the .prj file extension for project files include Maestro, Microsoft Visual Basic, Visual Cafe, Turbo C, FireFly SDK, and AwpHelp.

Although many software applications use the .prj file extension, not all PRJ files are interchangeable across all applications. This means that a PRJ file that has been created in one application may not be able to be opened with another application that uses the .prj file extension due to differences in the format of the file type.

How to open PRJ files

Important: Different programs may use files with the PRJ file extension for different purposes, so unless you are sure which format your PRJ file is, you may need to try a few different programs.
