File Extension PRO

The file extension PRO is associated with more than ten programs and applications and various file types. Some of the programs and applications include ProPresenter, Adobe Proto, KiCad, Prolog, and IDL. PRO files contain data and information related to the program that created the file.

If the file extension PRO is related to ProPresenter, the file is a video file type that contains videos and song lyrics which are used to create productions for worship. The contents can be integrated with other worship music used for a church service. ProPresenter is a multiplatform software application created by Renewed Vision which provides tools for creating productions and presentations used for worship.

PRO files which are created with Adobe Proto are a web file type which is designed for use with mobile devices. This type of PRO file contains page layouts, interactive elements, prototypes for websites, and other technologies used for website and image development. Adobe Proto is a Touch App which provides tools for designing and editing illustrations and photos which can be shared using the Adobe Creative Cloud.

PRO files which are part of KiCad are a CAD file type which is used for the electronic design industry. PRO files associated with KiCad contain printed circuit board designs and schematics for different types of electronics. KiCad is an open source Computer Aided Design software application which provides a set of tools for the design of printed circuit boards (PCB).

If the PRO extension is associated with Prolog, it is a source code and script file type which contains files that are created using the Prolog programming language. The source codes and scripts in the file are mainly related to linguistics and artificial intelligence and are written in terms of relations which are activated by running queries. Both elements are created using Prolog program logic and single data. GNU Prolog is an open source compiler created by Daniel Diaz for developing files in the Prolog programming language.

PRO files which are related to IDL are a source code and script file type which is created using the Interactive Data Language. IDL is a programming language which is used to create applications that are used for performing data analysis. IDL is a software development application created by Exelis Visual Information Solutions which provides tools for creating dynamic visualizations and analysis elements for commercial software used for the study and analysis of data.

How to Open PRO files

Since the file extension PRO is associated with multiple programs and applications, double click on the file to see if it will automatically open in a default program you have installed on your PC. PRO files can consist of different file types, so you may already have a program which will open the file.

PRO files which are part of ProPresenter can be opened using the ProPresenter 5 software application. ProPresenter is available in both a demo and paid version on the Renewed Vision website. It is compatible with the Windows operating system and Mac OS X.

If the file extension PRO is related to Adobe Proto, you can open the file using the Adobe Proto Touch App which is available as a paid download on the Adobe website. Adobe Proto is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices. Once you open PRO files with Adobe Proto, you can also opt to obtain a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud which allows you to share PRO files with other users.

PRO files which belong to KiCad can be opened using KiCad EDA Software Suite which is released under the open source GNU General Public License v2 on the website. KiCad can be obtained as a free download and is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, and the Linux operating system.

You can also opt to convert KiCad PRO files to another format such as DSN to enable the file to be used with a broader range of applications including OrCAD and ISIS Schematic. There are a number of file conversion programs available as a free download on websites such as CNET and Softpedia which will convert PRO files to another PCB (Printed Circuit Board) format.

You can also use an online resource such as Zamzar which will perform free file conversion for you. Simply log onto the Zamzar website, browse for the PRO file, choose a new format, enter your email address, and click on Convert. Within minutes you will receive the newly converted file in your email inbox.

If the file extension PRO is created with Prolog, you can open the file using the GNU Prolog compiler which can be downloaded at no cost on the website. GNU Prolog is cross platform and compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, and the Linux operating system. You can also open and view the contents of Prolog PRO files using any text editing program such as Notepad or WordPad for Windows, Apple TextEdit for Mac, or gEdit and Nano Editor for Linux.

If the PRO file extension is part of IDL, you can open the file using IDL 8.2.1 which can be downloaded as a trial version on the Exelis website. IDL is designed for use with the Windows operating system.
