What is an XPR file?

What is an XPR file?

We are sharing some files with another company when they attempt to bring
up an assembly we gave them Pro/E responds that it cannot find an XPR file
and then fails to open the assembly. Is an XPR file an accelerator file? I
tried using accelerator files many moons ago and they made things more
difficult for our PDM system at that time so we avoided using them, but I
am wondering if the file they are having problems with may have been one
of the files I tested accelerator files on and not everything was cleaned
up properly when I removed the config option for accelerator files.

Anyone know?

XPR file type.

It's a part instance accelerator file (XAS would be for an assy, I
believe).  They should be able to open the generic to find the instance
in question and then be able to open the assy.  Once saved, the XPR
should be created and the assy should open directly just fine.
