.PRG File Extension
File Type 1Program File
What is a PRG file?
Program file used by various applications; may be an executable function or script that can be run within another program; may also be a text file that contains source code, which can be compiled into an executable program.
File Type 2PC-DMIS Part Program File
.PRG File Association 2
CAD file created by PC-DMIS, a metrology software used for programming coordinate-measuring machines (CMMs); saves a "part program," which contains instructions for moving the machine around a physical part in order to take its measurements.
PC-DIMS part programs allow designers the ability to store a program offline and run them in the 3D software environment before running them with an actual coordinate-measuring machine.
File Type 3xBase Program File
.PRG File Association 3
Program file used by older DOS versions of dBASE and xBase variants; saved as a script which can be run with the dBASE or xBase interpreter; can be run without compilation, which provides developers with faster turn-arounds when testing.
File Type 4Akai MPC2000 Program File
.PRG File Association 4
Program file used by the Akai MPC series samplers such as the MPC2000; contains one or more audio samples, including the sample name and MIDI information used for mapping the samples to particular keys.
File Type 5GEM Application
.PRG File Association 5
Application file used by GEM Desktop (Graphic Environment Manager), an old operating system released in 1988; also used by Atari ST systems, which used GEM Desktop; stores a program similar to how an .EXE file stores a program in Windows.
File Type 6RAPID Program File
.PRG File Association 6
Program written in the RAPID robotics programming language; contains instructions for automated robots to follow; may be created in ABB RobotStudio, a simulation and offline robot programming application; also be referred to as an S4 program.
File Type 7WAVmaker Patch File
.PRG File Association 7
File used by WAVmaker, a program used for rendering MIDI data to .WAV audio files; also used by Mellosoftron, a virtual sampler program; saves a "patch," which stores fine-tuned instrument playback settings for producing output audio.
File Type 8RPG Toolkit Program File
.PRG File Association 8
Source code file created using RPG Toolkit, a development environment for creating Windows role-playing games; contains code written using the RPG Toolkit syntax; used for scripting events when actions are taken in the game.
File Type 9Visual FoxPro Program File
.PRG File Association 9
Text program file used by Visual FoxPro, a development tool used for creating Windows database applications; contains one or more commands often instructing FoxPro to load a form or window designed within the software; often contains a "DO" command.
PRG files allow programs to be run within the Visual FoxPro environment. However, they are not Windows executable files. Therefore, you must first compile the program into a Windows executable in order to run it outside of Visual FoxPro.
NOTE: FoxPro, the predecessor to Visual FoxPro, is an xBase variant, so FoxPro PRG files may be similar to those found in other xBase programming environments, such as Clipper, dBFast, and older versions of dBASE.
File Type 10Commodore Program File
.PRG File Association 10
Executable program created for the older Commodore platform; could store one of many types of programs but now mainly used for preserving old games and playing them with Commodore emulation software such as CCS64.
