What Is INP File

Many software programs might share a common file extension, and INP files are often a form of binary file utilized by specific software. INP files primarily belong to Dassault Abaqus. The multilingual word processor InPage is primarily used to create text documents with the INP filename extension.

Text typed in Noorinastaliq typeface and rendered as Urdu in Nastaliq script make up an INP document. INP files are connected to replay (video) files that were recorded using the MAME arcade game emulator.

  • Video recordings of gameplay are often recorded in MAME INP files at significant game milestones.
  • INP files are used by some Sony camcorders to store image management information. These INP files are used to store metadata about photos and videos that were shot with a camcorder and are saved as hidden files in the AVF INFO directory.
  • INP files are used to store input data in the product simulation application Abaqus.
  • INP files provide input data that is used to create 2D and 3D visualizations.
  • For GIS applications like ArcGIS, textual input data is also saved via INP.

Popular software programs like Unknown Apple II File, Abaqus/CAE Input File, and Self-Extracting Archive Utility Project can all open files with the INP extension.

How To Open INP File 2023

You need suitable software like Abaqus to open an INP file. Without proper software you will receive a Windows message “How do you want to open this file?” or “Windows cannot open this file” or a similar Mac/iPhone/Android alert.

If you cannot open your INP file correctly, try to right-click or long-press the file. Then click “Open with” and choose an application.
