What is PCP file?
A PCP file is a container that contains information about an installer. It’s created by the installer during the installation process and is typically located in the root directory of the program’s installation folder. A PCP file contains properties for Windows Installer Patch Creation which specifies what happens during the installation of an application on Windows systems. During software installation, Windows Installer creates a file called "Property Value File" (PVF) which holds information about an application's install process. The following are some of the properties that are usually found in a PVF: name, version, entry point, minimum system requirements, minimum user rights, language. A PCP file also has these properties but it covers all applications installed through Windows Installer on one computer.
