What is a PROPS file?

Props file extension has Visual Studio Project Property file type, developed by Microsoft, which is associated with the "settings files" category.

Microsoft Visual Studio is a software development kit for developing Windows-based programs and applications. It creates files with this extension to save tool parameters and user’s macros. PROPS files are needed to save configuration data settings for the project in development. Before the release of Visual Studio 2010, project property files were saved with the .VSPROPS extension. Visual Studio 2010 can automatically convert older VSPROP files into the .PROPS format, when the project is loaded. But there is a chance that some incompatibilities may occur.
