.VCXPROJ File Extension

There is only one file type that uses the .VCXPROJ extension:

Visual C++ Project

Visual C++ Project

A VCXPROJ file is a software development project created by Visual C++, a Microsoft Visual Studio component used to develop C++ programs. It contains XML-formatted text that defines a project's content, platform requirements, versioning information, and web server or database server settings. VCXPROJ files are used to build developers' projects using MSBuild (the Microsoft Build Engine).

VCXPROJ files are meant to be opened and edited in Microsoft Visual Studio (Windows, Mac) as part of Visual Studio projects. However, because VCXPROJ files are XML files, you can open and edit them in any text or source code editor.
