What is a VPP file?

A VPP file is a source code file written in the V++ programming language. It contains a script used to run a small program in a console window. VPP files are created and edited in source code editors, usually after a developer has installed the V++ interpreter and the V++ extension for Microsoft Visual Studio Code.

More Information

V++ is an open source programming language developers can use to develop minor Windows Console applications. The scripts used to load and run these applications are saved in VPP files. To run a V++ program, developers open a Command Prompt window and execute their VPP script.

How to open a VPP file

You can open and edit a VPP file in any text or source code editor. However, if you want to view a VPP file with its V++ syntax highlighted correctly, you should open it in Microsoft Visual Studio Code after installing the V++ extension.

After you've finished editing your VPP file and have installed the V++ interpreter, you can execute your VPP script in Command Prompt to run the program the script describes.
