.INS File Association 4

File used by Windows for setting up dial-up and broadband Internet connections; contains connection setup information that enables Windows to setup Internet access with an ISP when opened; also commonly used for setting up Internet Explorer (IE) LAN connection settings.

More Information

System administrators and ISPs sometimes provide IE connection settings files to users with a URL to the INS file. However, as a security precaution, webpage links to INS files are blocked by Internet Explorer so that arbitrary scripts cannot be run on the local computer from a Web link. Instead of placing the link in the Web address field, you need to use the the IE settings dialog to apply the connection settings.

.INS File Association 8

Instruction file used by AGiliTY, an Adventure Game Toolkit (AGT) interpreter; contains instructions on how to play the AGT game it is packaged with; does not need to be included with AGT game.

More Information

An AGT game is played by typing commands to navigate through a story. It's similar to a choose-your-own-adventure book. AGiliTy emulates older machines from the 1980s and 1990s that played the original AGT games.

AGT games can be packaged with a wide variety of files that contain game data, including .TTL and .VOC files. Because of the large number of files that accompany the AGT game, the files can be converted into a single .AGX file with the AGT2AGX utility that comes with AGiliTy. This conversion reduces load time, game file size, and clutter.

Common INS Filenames

[name of the game].ins - The INS file bears the same name of the game.
