File extension .PUP
|Sony PlayStation Update Format||Sony||Compressed Files|
The PUP (PlayStation 3 Update File) file extension is used by SONY PlayStation 3 (PS3) systems. It is a mandatory and important file for the PS3 units to recognize and update its system applications. PUP files are digitally signed installers that are responsible for updating the system software of each device. It includes updates to both the operating system and game applications. The operating system updates are necessary for the correct performance of the device, while the game application updates include new features, fixes, and compatibility with other devices.
PUP files are created by the SCEA (Sony Computer Entertainment America, LLC) as part of their PlayStation 3 platform. The format is based on Sony’s SELF-executable standard, which is a type of archive format that contains all the necessary files and executable data required to install application updates. The file format is compressed in a LZMA format.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .PUP) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .PUP extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .PUP file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .PUP extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .PUP extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .PUP file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .PUP file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .PUP file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .PUP file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .PUP file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
